The 2012 Canadian Budget (Economic Action Plan) is cutting agriculture spending by 10% over the next 3 years, but at the same time upping subsidy for GMO research and biofuel cash crops. They also recently dissolved the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB), likely to set up a new larger price and distribution entity and repo a thwack of infrastructure. For the kicker 2006 seed production went from substantial to zero (0!) for certain crops in Canada*.

Manufactured food shortage anyone?

Maybe we can all be fed feces and pink slime.

It gets my vote
Some of the little fat buggers need to eat less Blush

Seriously though I would rather see portion size reduced than the quality reduced even more than it already is.
We may be doing them a favour not having to eat the overprocessed crap thats being served up.

How about paents taking some responsibility for their kids once in a while instead.

If they reduced the quality any more the children would be eating sawdust and sewage water.

Don't cha ya know? The portion size of kids lunches had to be cut so that the administrators of the food programs could continue to make their Mercedes Benz payment, get their nails done, and continue to pay their favorite call girl for "relaxation therapy".
