The Environmental Commissioner of Ontario's report proves that the government cannot be trusted with defending the people and places we love in Ontario.
Happy Diwali to all who are celebrating!
Diwali is a holiday enjoyed by Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs around the world. On this festive occasion, communities are encouraged to make contributions to charitable causes to promote kindness and compassion toward others.
The festival of Diwali is representative of the victory of light over darkness and good over evil. It is a reminder for all of us to renew our commitments to self-improvement and care for those around us.
May the Festival of Lights bring you joy, goodwill, prosperity and peace.
Real People, Real Solutions is a series of interviews with people who are making a difference in communities across Ontario. Hosted by GPO leader Mike Schreiner.
In recent years, the GPO has lead the fight to liberate local beer in Ontario. Liberating local beer helps create more local jobs and gives consumers easier access to the unique and tasty products from our craft brewers. In this episode, Mike talks to Michael Guillemette, Head Brewer at Stack Brewery, about how they have grown their business, and what the government can help do to further support Ontario’s craft brewers and their products.
Ontario’s craft brewers deserve fair access to the marketplace. We strongly believe allowing local brewers to open their own stores will create a fair playing field, foster local jobs in the craft brewing industry, and offer more choice to consumers. The government has taken some steps to do this, but more action is needed. We also strongly urge the government to adopt a model that supports local businesses for other regulated products such as Cannabis, as well.
About Stack Brewing
Stack Brewing officially opened its doors to the Sudbury community in June of 2013. Since then, Stack has won several provincial and national awards from the Ontario Brewing Awards and the Canadian Brewing Awards. Our brewery has gone through many expansions to meet the high demand for quality craft beer in Northern Ontario and has recently started to distribute product throughout Ontario.
With beers like Shatter Cone, La Cloche, Nickel City, Saturday Night, Panache and Valley Girl, it’s clear to see the branding represents everything that makes Northern Ontario cool, quirky, and unique. Check out Stack Brewery’s products on tap at your favourite pub, on the shelf at your local LCBO, Beer Store, and grocery store or visit the brewery at 1350 Kelly Lake Road in Sudbury.

Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family, and community. It is also a time to celebrate the local harvest and support Ontario 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. It is a time to thank the people who grow our food.
Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to enjoy Ontario’s agricultural bounty – think about buying 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.
We are committed to working across party lines to defend Ontario farmers and to protect prime farmland. Please take a moment to support our commitment to putting Food and Water First to protect prime farmland and source water regions.
The GPO also believes it is time for the government to put the words of the Local Food Act into action. The government should make a commitment that requires, not just encourages, Ontario’s public institutions to buy local sustainable food.
This weekend, let’s give thanks to the farmers who are the stewards of our land and water resources. And let’s commit to protecting the land that sustains us.
