In response to: Save-On move huge blow to downtown.
Save-On moving is a huge blow to downtown. Business-wise, it is a good decision for Save-On.
But to quote Yoda:there is another.
The Downtown Prince George Farmers Market has been supplying fresh, and local edibles for many, many years. The solution already exists.
Did you know farmers markets in B.C. act similar to Food Banks with the help of the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets (BCAFM)?
The BCAFM covers the cost of food for those facing poverty.
What can we do?
The Prince George city council needs to act. Stop selling buildings used by the farmers markets. Stop using bylaw officers to force farmers markets to close, as seen in 2019. Simply support Canadians selling Canadian farmed goods.
We have the local talent. Can those we call leaders let us help ourselves?
