October 2, 2013 Standing Committee Hansard

December 16, 2013


All should be interested to read the comments in opposition to the OIA’s Bill made by Dave Buttenham (Ontario Agri-Business Association), Clare Kinlin (Certified Crop Advisors) and Liberal MPP Monte Kwinter on behalf of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food. 

Despite meeting with all parties in advance, it was unfortunate that those expressing opposition failed to appreciate the broad benefits to stakeholders in the agri-food industry or to the citizens of Ontario that this Bill will provide.  Enhanced consumer confidence, increased business growth and competitiveness, and improved public safety through OIA registration and certification will be achieved.
