Slipping without squeezing—and dying without living. Hearts beat without your consent, planets continue to spin without your knowledge, and the McPeople populating this giant value meal will never remember your name. So why, then, am I still watering this plant? If it all ends, and you’re not invited to the reopening, should the day matter? […]

In last issue, I talked about the horrendous amount of food we as Canadians are producing and wasting every year.
