Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family and community. It is also a time to celebrate the local harvest and to support Ontario food and farmers.

Thanksgiving weekend is the conclusion of Agriculture Week in Ontario, a time to reflect on the wide variety of nutritious, locally grown food that we are fortunate to have access to in our province and to thank the people who grow it.

Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to enjoy Ontario's agricultural bounty. The Green Party encourages you to buy local when preparing your Thanksgiving meal. Whether you are baking a delicious pumpkin pie or serving up sweet potatoes, you can find all of that goodness and more here in Ontario.

This weekend, let us remember to give thanks to the farmers who are the stewards of our land. The GPO remains committed to working with rural communities to ensure the protection of prime farmland and source water regions across Ontario.
