Last week we hosted a workshop with about 50 people to discuss options for new local food distribution ideas in the Niagara-Hamilton region. Over the years I have spent a lot of time in Niagara, biking in the Tour de Greenbelt, visiting numerous wineries, hiking the Niagara Escarpment, and oh yeah, my mom lives there too.

I met with Joe Kantor for lunch this week – a leader in the Oshawa Generals organization. The Generals are a local OHL team with great history and pride in junior hockey. Joe has two young kids and is really committed to incorporating the Generals into the fabric of Oshawa and its surrounding Greenbelt.
