Let’s Talk Food: A Panel Discussion among Edmonton-area Mayors

Cultivating Connections: Alberta Regional Food Systems Forum

February 3, 2017

Kevin Jones, Director of City Region Studies Centre, University of Alberta (moderator)

Lisa Holmes, Mayor of Morinville, President, Alberta Urban Municipalities Association

Billy Morin, Chief, Enoch Cree Nation

Tom Flynn, Mayor, Sturgeon County

Don Iveson, Mayor, Edmonton

These mayors elevate the conversation about the sustainability of our region as a prosperous, resilient, growing place, and local and regional food systems. This was an important opportunity to engage in a meaningful dialogue about regionalism, growth, land-use, and preservation of land for agriculture and food systems. It was also an opportunity to “cultivate connections” between these communities!
