Front Yard Garden Illegal In Quebec, The Work Of Local Agenda 21?

With the big push to become more environmentally friendly and sustainable. One would think that front yard as well as back yard gardens would be welcomed with open arms. This is not the case in Drummondville, Quebec. Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp have been told they must scale down or remove their garden by town officials.

Drummondville town code states: that a vegetable garden can take up 30 percent of a front yard at most. They have given Landry and Beauchamp two weeks to comply. Meaning that they must drastically scale down their beautiful garden, or completely remove it.

If they fail to comply with the orders, they can face fines of $100 to $300 a day! Regardless of these threats the couple has stated in a CBC interview, that they have no intention of complying with the order.

The town of Drummondville has also said that they will be making all front yard gardens illegal in the fall of this year, and we Canadians still believe that we have property rights.

You may be thinking that the town government might just have a few screws loose, but we couldn’t be that lucky!

The town of Drummondville has signed on to a program called Climat Municipalités. A ICLEI (Local governments for sustainability) program. ICLEI is a group who is pushing local agenda 21 programs into cities and towns, through stealth initiatives.

The main goal of agenda 21 is to make the people dependent on a centralized government for everything, including food. Not to mention the removal of property rights (which is very clear in this case). So of course people who want to provide a healthy and self reliant source of food, is not going to be welcomed!

This is the green agenda. It’s only green and sustainable if it is produced by the government!

    The reference to agenda 21, it that under that program. Government controlled sustainability is desired. Not individuals becoming self sustainable.

    Agenda 21 programs will actually block things like growing your own garden and still declare that it is self sustainability.

    I love your garden/. Good for you! They can waste our money on stupidities like fake lakes and upgrades to fancy hotels but even in our ownhome we cannot do something to help ourselves. You have seen the benefits. Keep fighting. I know there are many who willhelp you.

    I don’t understand the reference to Agenda 21 as this is exactly the opposite of Agenda 21…

  7. S we’re suposed to live sustainably but how dare you live sustainably???!! Give me a break!! This is just as messed up as people going totally off grid then being forced back onto it by officials… they don’t give a sh*t about true sustainability but are going to use it to tell us how to live our lives whether it is sustainable or not… This is purely for control and for any doubters… the widlife people (in power, Ministers and other officials and the UN that is!!) freak out about invasive species but then are allowing GMO food and GMO species like misquitoes to be released into the wild, which could devastate the eco-system. If they truly cared they’d try to protect the ecosystem from GMO contamination…. it’s all bullsh*t.

    Yeah, the ‘push back’ is now.. speak up often and loudly in your community on the problem of ‘sustainable development’ and how is comes to roost… the more buzz you create as the people’s media – talking to each other – the better.. people don’t happen to like being pushed around… good luck everyone… you are the Resistance
