The Ontario Food Terminal is an important economic hub, providing employment for many people living in our riding.
Furthermore, our local small businesses rely on the Terminal for access to quality, affordable produce at fair prices.
Despite the integral role the Ontario Food Terminal plays in Ontario's food system, and the fact that it doesn't require public money to operate, we've heard the land may be sold to developers for condos.
Moving the Food Terminal will benefit large grocery chains that have their own distribution network, such as Loblaws. It will hurt smaller businesses, like our independent grocers and restaurants—and our neighbours will lose their jobs.
If you support local jobs and local businesses, then let's work to protect the Ontario Food Terminal. Sign the petition below!
