The Politics of Food

by Don Mitchell

Food and politics in Canada cannot be separated.  And continuing price increases and commodity crises have made the politics of food a matter of great public interest and concern.

Rather than finding scapegoats and heroes, Don Mitchell places food and food politics in the overall context of the Canadian economy and economic policy.  He finds that governments offer the same support to large corporations and observe the same subservience to U.S. economic interests that are familiar in other others.  Mitchell documents an alternative approach which could end the profiteering and exploitation of farmers, food industry workers and consumers.
