A Financial Post article detailing the process behind shipping food to Canada consulted Arrell Food Institute director Dr. Evan Fraser on the dilemmas involved with Canada’s food supply chain.  

In the article, Fraser warned the current way the food supply chain system works won’t last forever, similarly to his comments in the Toronto Star. He also remarked that climate change, especially drought, will pose serious threats to the system. 

Along with being a professor in the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, Fraser is the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security. He studies food security, food prices and rural agricultural policy and how each is affected by climate change.
