“We’re a northern country, why the hell are we able to buy fresh tomatoes and lettuce and fresh fruit 12 months a year? We’ve got to start living in a way that reflects the place that we live.”

Why?

  1. Because fuck you, that's why.
  2. To put in my triple bacon cheese burger with an egg on top that I pick up through the drive-through in my Hemi Challenger. I throw the lettuce out the window, by the way.

I've tried to find what he considers a suitable diet and not surprisingly he never makes any specific suggestions. Basically people shouldn't be eating meat and insects are an alternative. So no lettuce or tomatoes all year long yet here is saying "we have to stay much closer to a high-vegetable diet, and fruit" http://www.theseniortimes.com/david-suzuki-caring-for-our-bodies-minds-is-the-key-to-aging-well/

So what are 38+ million Canadians supposed to be eating year round, esp. when certain fruits and vegetables aren't in season? Are we supposed to be canning and preserving everything like in the olden days? If anything we should be eating more meat and dairy because it's sustainable throughout the year and if farmers are protected can be produced locally. Meat and dairy is what northern people have traditionally relied on after all.
