"Industrial and housing development as well as cheap imported produce has resulted in large losses of farmland in the Niagara Peninsula. Various examples are cited and discussions of the problem with farmers and politicians take place.

Library and Archives Canada: 3/4".
"Where peaches once grew, now housing developments have taken over; hydro towers are routed over valuable farm land; highways follow the easiest path, usually the best land; and airports cover acres and acres of good agricultural soil with concrete. Today's values emphasize factories and jobs, but for how long can people continue to allow prime farm land to be sacrificed?"
