They Really Do Want You Eating Bugs: Cricket Production Subsidies From Ottawa
Beyond eating the bugs, Canada (as well as many places), is phasing out meat in favour of plant alternatives

When they say “We might be eating insects soon”, they really mean it.
Just like the Corona Operation, global starvation and feeding remaining slaves with bugs were planned years in advance.
And just like the murderous Convid-Industrial Complex, bug-producing abominations are financed with your tax dollars.

With food shortages being predicted in the near future (not that this was planned), it’s interesting to see what exactly is being used to fill the void. Will more production plants be built, or will new “alternatives” become available for the peons?
Not only is “Eat the bugs, bigot” more than just a meme, it seems that Canadian tax dollars are being used to subsidize these ideas. Here are some recent grants from the Federal Government.
Of course, all of this can be found by checking the list of grants that has been handed out. Such information is considered public record.
Aspire Food Group, which received $8.5 million, has been lobbying Ottawa for that money. The money isn’t yet available on the Registry, but we’ll have to check for updates. Specific agencies include:
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC)
Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev)
Global Affairs Canada (GAC)
Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED)
Good to see public money spent so wisely.
Although it went unnoticed by many, Aspire did announce in 2020 that it would soon have the largest cricket processing plant in the world. The new plant in London, Ontario was completed in May 2022. Apparently, some 9,000 metric tons of crickets will be produced annually, both for human and animal consumption.
Aspire won the Clinton Global Initiative Hult Prize in 2013. They’ve since posted an update on their YouTube channel about where the company is heading.
Eating bugs is hardly a new concept, and has been promoted by the U.N. for many years. Now, it’s just more obvious.
There will have to be updates on this topic, but it’s rather unsettling to see this direction.
It was announced in the 2017 Federal budget that there would be millions in spending for so-called “superclusters“. These are just areas of research. One of those was Agri-Foods, which turned out to just be ways to get rid of meat altogether.
At the time of writing this, there are several projects on the go, including:
Strangely, there don’t seem to be many — or any — initiatives to get Canadians into farming, raising animals for food. It’s almost as if things are going in a different direction.
This is from page 79 of the 2017 budget. So, this wasn’t just some spur of the moment idea. It’s been in the works for a long time. The goal is apparently to generate at least $25 billion per year from sales in plant based foods and materials, according to the 2022-2023 Annual Report from Protein Industries Canada.
It’s fair to assume that production will only ramp up as far as the plant based industry goes. Again, there’s little to no enthusiasm to increase meat production. Continue reading
