Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

The area we now call the Province of Ontario has a long and storied history as does every jurisdiction on this earth.  People migrate, attitudes and governing bodies change as do boundaries to protect self interests. 

Our country is young by most standards and the boundaries within have changed faster than the climate as we know it.  Southern Ontario, at one time, belonged to Quebec.  London Ontario was an important seat for Province of  Western Canada as the sands of time shifted. 

Our Prime Minister will be hosting a meeting with President Obama and President Nieto this June and it is no secret that furtherance of the North American Union will be a topic of discussion......sorry.... I meant Climate Change.

Creating a single American  zone will just compliment the European and Asian trading zones.    After all, treaties such as the TPP are really just about money.

But what about the good citizens that live outside the GTA in Ontario, the forgotten souls that Queens Park has totally lost sight of?  How will we fare with the coming changes?  Who will represent our best interests?  Does anyone even care about the people in the vast agricultural lands surrounding the GTA?

It is safe to say the people outside the GTA have virtually no representation at this time.

But that can change.  Boundaries, as we know, have changed and will continue to change.

The people in Northern Ontario are petitioning to create a separate province.  Their concerns are unique to their area and Queens Park is not showing any inclination to understand their plights.  Who can blame them for wanting to create a political body that can better care for their citizens?

But rural Ontario is saying many of the same things and there is a movement to create still another province in southern Ontario. 

With the implementation of the TPP and further harmonization of North American standards, maybe it is time to divide this province into smaller jurisdictions for better management.  The interests of the people in the GTA are unquestionable different than the interests in Northern Ontario and SW Ontario.

I think there is merit to changing the boundaries again in Ontario and splitting it into a number of smaller Provinces.
