Letter writer says people must be priorities in world food crisis

Dear Editor;
Canada pledged an additional $50 million for emergency food aid to help fight the upcoming world food crisis. It’s a step in the right direction, but only if it’s this time steered towards the poor populations, not towards Canadian businesses installed abroad.

Dear Editor;

Canada pledged an additional $50 million for emergency food aid to help fight the upcoming world food crisis. It’s a step in the right direction, but only if it’s this time steered towards the poor populations, not towards Canadian businesses installed abroad.

We must consider that the world food crisis does not ensue from a cataclysm or from unpredictable events. It results from an unjust economic system which considers the private interest of the companies before the public interest of the populations.

It’s by taking this reality into account that we can seriously consider winning the fight against this upcoming world food crisis.
