LIBERAL ENERGY POLICY HURTING LOCAL AGRI-FOOD PRODUCERS

(Manotick)- Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod was in Manotick today at SUNTECH Greenhouses with owner Bob Mitchell to highlight the challenges the Ontario Liberal Government’s energy policy have placed on local agri-food producers. SUNTECH is best known for greenhouse tomatoes which are regularly referred to as the “little miracles from Manotick” .

Bob Mitchell agreed, “Compare my product to the exact same product selling on shelves from Mexico. You will see my tomatoes and cucumbers are at least 30% more expensive thanks to the Liberals’ energy policy that make it tougher for me to compete.”
