Prime Minister Stephen Harper: Save the Meyers family farm from the Trenton Military base

"They don't make prime farmland anymore" are the words of 86 year old Frank Meyers, who is farming his 2 century old family farm next door to the Canadian Military Forces Base in Trenton, Ontario. 

The Canadian forces, and our Prime Minister, have decided they need his 220 acres of prime land to build a weapons trainning base and are forcing Frank Myers out this winter, after his last corn harvet. (Oh, they Canadian Military already has a training base in Ottawa, but have decided they want to move it).

Once that farmland is gone, it's never coming back.  There is still time to save the land so that future generations have food security.  There are lots of places to engage in military training, but it doesn't have to happen on prime farmland.  Let's support Frank Myers and future generations of food producers!
