Using existing technologies in a manner which has not been done before, Canada could start cost-effectively growing food that is currently imported.  This would make Canada more self-sufficient, reduce our greenhouse gas footprint, create local jobs and create a profitable local business.  Elements of the model could also be used in other countries to make food production less expensive and more efficient globally.

Food produced would be free of herbicides and pesticides.

What is needed is the support to put together a production scale pilot operation.  Capital costs would be recovered in a couple of years.  The challenge is getting funding for the pilot.

At the end of August in San Francisco, the Inaugural  Global Grand Challenge Awards will be given. https://exponential.singularityu.org/summit/ggc/

This will be three days of world innovation leaders gathered for the Singularity University Global Summit. If we want to attract talent, we have to make sure they can see us! Catalyst Agri-Innovations Society is a finalist in the environmental category, and will be presenting their "Technology Meets Permaculture" program. I hope there will be some other official Canadian representation there!
