Illustration produced during the Arrell Food Summit by Alex Sawatzky. The illustration asks, “Is Canada’s food reputation a strategic priority? Are we engaging in global dialogues? Are we leveraging metrics? Are we tapping into our diversity?” The conclusion is that if we built a food system from scratch it would have explicit accountabilities, shared leadership, shared data, improved collaboration, better evidence and improved transparency.
