Elect Betsey Price For Port Hope Council Ward 2
To enhance for policy-making purposes in a rural municipality the understanding of agriculture's needs (e.g., unfragmented, quality land, labour for on-farm diversification) within our shared desire for food and water security, environmental sustainability, natural reserves, reforestation, and good roads and transportation.
To represent all rural residents - farmers, small-business owners, and rural-life enthusiasts alike - in promoting land uses generally related to agriculture, in line with the Policies of the current Municipal Town Plan. An explicit goal is to minimize conflicts between food-production related activities and development. Of particular concern for me is the fate of General Agricultural Land in connection with Infill zoning and uses not compatible with farming.
