Statement from Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath on Ontario Agriculture Week

“On behalf of the Ontario NDP and in recognition of Ontario Agriculture Week, thank-you to all of Ontario’s agricultural producers!

I encourage people across the province to celebrate this week by stopping in at your local farmer’s market, making an extra effort to buy Ontario produce at your grocery store, or treating your family to a night out at a restaurant that sources their food locally.

Ontario has 37,000 farm families who produce a year-round supply of meat, eggs, dairy and greenhouse vegetables.  By buying local, you are supporting these families and our province’s local economies not to mention getting fresh, delicious and environmentally friendly groceries. 

So go out and enjoy all the delicious food Ontario has to offer.  Happy Ontario Agriculture Week!”
