Local Farm Land In Nova Scotia

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty
Family farming has been made unprofitable by the provincial and national agricultural policies of the past decades. Increasingly farmers feel pressured to sell their farmland for development. That temporarily solves the farmer's financial problems, but the long term consequences for us all is devastating . . .

We need solutions to help farmers and in my opinion we need to keep real estate development out of farm land. Below is a video I helped film and edit on a local food project in Nova Scotia; it just makes sense.

From the opening line of the video, "Maybe you, maybe you got to go out on the street and say dammit all, look are we crazy? are we are going to lose a history of 400 years of food production because nobody thought about it? Start thinking about it!" The "radio show" 4 minutes into the video is hilarious :-)



Did you hear the entire interview with the farmer from the beginning quote? It starts 13:45 into the video. Paul Colville is on-fire and pretty much sums it all up here.

Let your voice be heard please come to the event on Wednesday the 27th at the Halifax Forum by the The Nova Scotia Agricultural Land Review Committee. Yes this is today! The Halifax Forum is on the corner of Young and Windsor. The meeting is in their multipurpose room which you enter from the Young Street side.
