    Low footprint food choices are not the same as vegan food choices in all cases, the analysis is more complex than this. Generally a low footprint diet is local, seasonal food, and limits consumption of red meat, dairy, and some grains. Low footprint food choices are included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan and will be discussed through community engagement activities.

    Encourage vegan options by offering subsidies or grants to vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants. These should be offered to the businesses with the most solid business plans, rather than by lottery; we don't want another food cart debacle.

    The quality and attractiveness of the pedestrian experience is a primary consideration in public realm planning and design. However, there is an opportunity to be more creative in the design of specific elements, such as sidewalk materials, and incentives/requirements for pedestrian-oriented building design and facade improvements.

    Tax Free, I think you're seriously deluding yourself if you're suggesting that McDonald's offers high quality food at reasonable prices. They offer incredibly low-quality, unsustainable, unhealthy food at incredibly low prices. Their prices explain their market share - period. And their prices are low because they've taken advantage of economies of scale and unethical business and farming practices that allow them to produce huge quantities of high-calorie food cheaply - to the detriment of the environment and the animals.

    The health of the world would be seriously disadvantaged if McDonald's were the bar set for food vending, and so would the environment. Vegetarian diets - and available, ethically produced, environmentally sustainable vegetarian food - have the power to change the world. Animal-based food production is hugely harmful to the planet.
