What can Singapore do to become self-sufficient in food?
Convert all golf courses to farm land or for modern farming.
How about buying farms overseas? We could add value by increasing harvest with the use of machinery. We can also line our streetscape with crops that can be harvested, or turn Sisters' Islands and Pulau Ubin into farming communities.
It is too expensive to farm for the masses in Singapore. My plan has always been a Temasek-owned outfit that farms in Australia and India, and perhaps Indonesia.

Who wants their kids to be commercial fishermen?

Build our own vertical farms and lab grown meat.
We have all sorts of rooftop gardens that can be transformed and expanded into hanging gardens with all kinds of fruits and vegetables.

Build multi-storey animal farms.
There is a country in Europe that does underground vegetable farming. It uses hydroponics and LED lights to grow vegetables. The soil that has been dug out of the ground can be used to fill reclaimed land. Joel Yang
Allow more commercial vertical farming in the outskirts of the city area, like Sembawang. Allow residents to plant edible food on HDB rooftops.
Some HDB spaces on the ground have been converted into small gardens. It should be implemented in more estates.
Gardens should be converted to the planting of edible flowers, vegetables or fruits instead of just trees.
Is a blanket ban on all ivory products too extreme? Should some items, such as antique instruments, be exempted from such a ban? Why or why not?
Yes, a blanket ban is too extreme, it affects those who are genuine antique collectors. Best that a permit be applied for any import of ivory.
Blanket ban is good. Ban should be absolute.
Do you think the stickers advertising locksmith services are useful or an eyesore? Why?
The locksmiths paste stickers all over the place outside our flat and they are really hard to remove.

I think we should allocate an advertisement space for these people. Sometimes, we do need the services... If not, they will end up sticking them on any space they want.
Anything we need can be located with a finger's touch through an Internet search.
I have seen some locksmiths giving magnets. That's better and more polite.
Stickers are often hard to remove and the paint on the wall and gate peels off as a result. Can I call them to repaint to cover the ugly patches?
