QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released the following statement after the Government amended the emergency orders to permit the use of community gardens in Ontario:

“I am encouraged that the Government heard the pleas from the people of Ontario, including the 10,000 people who signed the Green Party’s petition, to reopen community gardens with proper physical distancing guidelines in place.

Like the Premier said, community gardens are an essential source of fresh local food for families and food banks.

I am happy to see this government recognize that locally grown food should be considered an essential part of Ontario’s food security strategy.”
