Petition to the mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante, and the minister of the environment and climate change, Jonathan Wilkinson, to end food waste in Montreal. 

While the imminent danger climate change of climate change is increasing day by day, food waste is contributing greatly to this issue, as over 30 billion dollars of food ends up in landfills each year, which leads to emissions of methane, a strong greenhouse gas. To make matter worse, the food decomposing in these landfills isn't necessarily food which is expired and has gone bad. In fact, these areas are filled with products that are still edible and available for consumption. The issue of food waste is one that is very costly economically and environmentally, but it is also an issue that can be completely eliminated!

In fact, this is completely up to a change in lifestyle choices, and the way wholesalers, restaurants, food processors, farmers, and supermarkets handle their food in terms of production (and over-production) and waste. For instance, a law could require supermarkets, restaurants, etc to give unsold, yet still edible and healthy/safe food to food banks in Montreal. 

We, the undersigned residents of Montreal, call upon the mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante, and the minister of the environment and climate change, Jonathan Wilkinson, to end food waste in Montreal by pushing legislation that would regulate supermarkets, restaurants, etc. to give unsold, yet still edible and healthy/safe food to food banks in Montreal or discount grocery stores.
