The Canada’s Food Guide has been in place since 1942, and nearly a decade has passed since the release of the current Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide (EWCFG) (Mortillaro, 2016). Critics believe that the time has come for the revision of the second-most downloaded document in Canada – in the interest of reflecting the changing lifestyles of Canadians (Mortillaro, 2016). At the time of its launch during World War II, male-female roles differed vastly, with stay-at-home moms preparing home cooked meals. However, according to latest information provided by Statistics Canada, 69% of households with families are dual-earners today (Statistics Canada, 2015). The effect of dual earning has taken its toll on Canadian food consumption patterns (Mortillaro, 2016). Consequently, the existing food guide has received mixed reviews and immense criticism by several researchers, and has even been declared “obesogenic” (Corby, 2007; Kondro, 2006; L’Abbe & Mahsa, 2015). This is particularly disturbing because according to the 2004 Canadian Community Health Survey, 59% of the adult population is overweight and 1 in 4 is obese; the numbers are even more alarming regarding children and adolescents (Karmali et al., 2010). The cause of the obesity epidemic might be right at our fingertips with the “Unhealthy Food Guide” that is imposed on Canadians. One strict change that must occur to the food guide includes disassociating 100% fruit juices as vegetable and fruit sources, and thereby removing

Hi Mackenzie, I am in agreement with you and also believed the Court wrongfully validated the Texas law. Although, education is not directly expressed in the Constitution, it does not mean it is or cannot be a “fundamental” right. There have been many landmark cases that demonstrated a Court’s broader interpretation of a right protected by the Constitution. For instance, in Griswold v. Connecticut, the Court found a Connecticut law that prohibited the use of contraceptives by married couples unconstitutional. Additionally, the Court concluded that the law violated the rights of marital privacy and the right is afforded protection by the Constitution under the rights to privacy. Another example is Roe v. Wade, the Court found a Texas law

If a predator organism was removed from an ecosystem, it would allow the prey population to increase which could lead to not having enough food for these organisms to eat. For example, if wolves were eliminated from the taiga biome than there would be a dramatic increase in the population of moose. This would result in the moose not having enough jack pine and could lead to starvation. The wolves would then have to eat more rabbits, elk, and voles which would decrease their population and starve the organisms that rely on these animals.

Food security has three core components. These are food availability, accessibility and use of food (FAO, 2015, Welsh, 1998). 12.5% of household in Canada are suffering from food insecurity (Boddy and Roblin, 2017). Food insecurity is higher in immigrants compare to the Canadians (Health Canada, 2012, Welsh, 1998, Toronto Food Policy Council, 2013). Moreover, the food desert is another factor of food security where there is a lack of access to the food stores, fruit, and vegetables (Center for Disease control, 2012). Ethnic vegetables play an important role in the food security and nutrition of the South Asian immigrants (Quadir and Danesh,
