Studio Generates More Than $250 Million In Sales For Its Cannes Slate, Topping Last Year’s Company Record By More Than 50%

CANNES, France, May 22, 2013 /CNW/ – Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) continued to dazzle its International distribution partners with its lineup of films for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, achieving a Company record of more than $250 million in sales for nine titles that included MOCKINGJAY 1 and 2, the third and fourth installments of the global blockbuster HUNGER GAMES franchise, STEP UP 5 and upcoming Lionsgate and Summit titles such as DRAFT DAY, THE LAST WITCH HUNTER and Lionsgate UK’s A LITTLE CHAOS.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110919/LA70620LOGO)

The record total surpassed last year’s mark by more than 50% and doesn’t include the expected revenue from territories where Lionsgate distributes directly, such as the UK, or through distribution partnerships such as its 50/50 joint venture with IDC in Latin America and its partnership with Universal Pictures in India.

“Our strong performance at Cannes this year is attributable in part to the international framework we’ve set in place combining output deals around the world with self-distribution in key territories such as the UK and Latin America,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chair Patrick Wachsberger. “This infrastructure gives us enormous flexibility and is already delivering remarkable results.”

Wachsberger also noted that Lionsgate fielded one of its strongest slates ever at Cannes, and the Company built anticipation among its distributors by showing them elements of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE campaign and a sneak preview of footage from one of its upcoming young adult franchises, Summit Entertainment’s DIVERGENT. Distributor enthusiasm was fueled by the presence in Cannes of CATCHING FIRE stars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth and director Francis Lawrence, who met international press and attended a gala party for the film’s distributors.

The titles on this year’s slate included the third and fourth installments of THE HUNGER GAMES franchise, THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PARTS 1 & 2, Summit Entertainment’s DRAFT DAY; Roman Polanski’s VENUS IN FUR (R.P. Productions, Monolith Films) which is in competition for this year’s Palme d’Or ; JOHN WICK (Thunder Road); THE LAST WITCH HUNTER (Mark Canton Production, One Race Entertainment, Emmett/Furla); A LITTLE CHAOS (Potboiler Productions, The Bureau); REAWAKENING (Blumhouse Productions, Mosaic); and the latest installment in Summit’s global dance franchise, STEP UP 5.

Wachsberger led a team that included Wendy Reeds, Executive Vice President of Content Sales and Distribution atCelestial Tiger Entertainment, and Crystal Bourbeau, Senior Vice President of International Sales at Lionsgate as well as recently named Lionsgate International Chief Operating Officer Andrew Kramer.

25 New Double-Decker GO Buses On The Way

April 3, 2013

Ontario Government Improving Public Transit

The new Ontario government is helping more commuters take public transit with 25 new double-decker GO buses.

The new buses carry 26 more passengers — 81 in total, up from 55. They are also lower than GO’s current double-deckers, allowing them to operate on 45 routes, which is 34 more than existing double-deckers can accommodate.

The first bus will go into service tomorrow and will operate on GO’s Highway 407 routes. Remaining buses are scheduled to go into service by the end of May 2013.

Investing in public transit is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to help reduce congestion, strengthen the economy and create jobs.

QUICK FACTS

  • The new buses feature controlled air vents, LED reading lights, charging outlets and front-mounted bike racks.
  • GO Transit carries approximately 65 million passengers per year.
  • Since 2003, Ontario has invested more than $16.1 billion in public transit in Ontario, including $7.7 billion in GO Transit.

The Politics of Black Hair

The Politics of Black Hair

By Donna Kakonge

OISE/University of Toronto

 

ABSTRACT

 

What is so threatening about natural Black hair? This is something we are still aiming to understand although one of the researchers began the study at Concordia University in Montréal in 1997. The suggestion for studying Black hair came from two naturally Blonde women. We continue to do study in our PhD at OISE/University of Toronto. Back in the mid-1980s, watching Oprah’s bouncing and behaving hair was like a dream come true. We never knew that Black hair could do that. We rushed to a salon, telling them to duplicate the Oprah ‘do on our heads and they did. The bad part is that just like what once happened to Oprah, our hair fell out. We were left with no hair on our heads for a time to duplicate any ‘do. Now we have hair, different from First Lady Michelle Obama, but hair nonetheless. What is so threatening about natural Black hair? Even Michelle Obama must blow dry straight her natural hair to keep her hair so healthy, just like Oprah does.

 

Introduction

 

Nina Simone sings “Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair,” however that song is first a traditional folk song potentially coming from Scotland (“Black Is the Colour (Of My True Love’s Hair),” 2013) and actually many of us have once thought our true soul mate was a bald man, even if it was Mr. Clean. But the inside love (that’s all of us) do have Black hair. Learning to love ourselves and our hair, however we choose to protect it, colour it, straighten it, weave it, love it, braid it, lock or dread it and ultimately embracing it, is a never-ending project. We have decided to make it our unofficial focus of study at the graduate and PhD level.

One of the researchers sits with some friends at a Montréal university pub in 1997 talking about what she often does – hair. One of them says to Donna, “why don’t you do research on hair?” Donna thinks she is crazy and that she will not ever find information on the topic. She does. Five pages worthy of a reference list for a master’s thesis done in two years.

As many Black women, and some Black men too, we have gone through quite a hair journey. We started off with our natural hair from birth and sitting between our mothers’ or fathers’ knees to get it combed and braided. We dreaded having our hair combed. This could be the reason why many of us do wear dreads and call them as such with Pride. We know more hair came out on the comb than what was actually on my head with the fine-toothed ones. Those combs are not made for curls boys and girls.

We would wear towels to simulate having White girls’ hair. Now, all we use a towel for is to dry the hair on our heads. We have heard that Whoopi Goldberg used to do this too. Many Black women have. When the Jheri curl became popular in the early 1980s, we begged our mothers or fathers or guardians to let us get “the Michael Jackson look.” Our parent/s, guardian/s allowed us to do so and because we hated going to the hair salon, our hair actually grew because we were barely combing it.

We wore the Jheri curl up until high school until we were introduced to relaxers through media. When we saw Janet Jackson in “The Pleasure Principle” video (“The Pleasure Principle (song),” 2013) with her swinging relaxed hair – we thought our pleasure principle relied on a relaxer.

We have all seen some of the friends we have or had, be successful with relaxers. When you have super curly hair from Mother Africa, this can be hard to achieve. Why should it be achieved? For whom? For what? Why? What is so threatening about natural Black hair? Some Black people’s hair is less super curly and can be straightened easily. This tends to be the case for many African-Americans which could explain why United States First Lady Michelle Obama’s hair does look good. So does super curly African hair.

Books by Lonnice Brittenum Bonner that we find while browsing through A Different Booklist or Accents on Eglinton in Toronto or Knowledge Bookstore in Brampton, Ontario inspire us to start using olive oil, jojoba, aloe vera gel and natural oils on our hair. We oil our hair, eat nutritious foods, exercise and ensure that the beauty of our hair is the crown to the beauty of our outer and the envelope to the beauty of our inner. However, the hair can be permanently locked as you may see with some Rastafarians or people who wear their hair in locks, or dreads, with Pride.

This brings us to today where many African people wear a variety of hairstyles, even the straightened ones, weaved ones, coloured ones, dreaded ones, wigged ones, braided ones, twisted ones and bald ones. Anything and everything goes because we are African people. Strong and proud and our hair does not define us – it is point of artistic expression as it is for all of humankind.

Statement by Minister Zimmer on the passing of Elijah Harper

May 17, 2013

David Zimmer, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, issued the following statement today on the passing of Elijah Harper:”I am saddened to learn of the passing of Elijah Harper.

Elijah Harper dedicated his life to public service and advancing First Nations issues — first as band Chief for Red Sucker Lake First Nation, then as a Member of the Manitoba Legislative Assembly and Manitoba’s Minister of Northern Affairs and Minister responsible for Native Affairs, and later as a prominent Member of Parliament.

Mr. Harper’s actions during the Meech Lake Accord united First Nations and raised awareness of Aboriginal issues among all Canadians.

Throughout his life, he was a strong voice for the advancement of Aboriginal Peoples and sought to improve relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Peoples to foster reconciliation, healing and understanding, which is something we should all strive for.

On behalf of all Ontarians, let me express my sympathies to the family and friends of Elijah Harper.”

Canada Cares and We Care Home Health Services to grant one caregiver $10,000 to fulfill a special wish  Toronto, Ontario – March 28, 2013 – Do you know a caregiver who deserves recognition? In a unique initiative, Canadians are being asked to nominate a family, friend or professional caregiver for a “best in Canada” caregiver award and explain what they would do with a $10,000 prize. Called the Canada Cares Caregiver Awards, the new initiative is being launched in celebration of National Caregiver Day, which takes place on April 5. It’s all part of an innovative program, called Canada Cares (www.canadacares.org), that supports and salutes caregivers of all kinds across the country. The awards, which will be presented at both a regional and national level, will recognize two exceptional caregivers – one family or friend and one health care professional – in Western, Atlantic and Northern Canada, as well as four exceptional caregivers in Central Canada. Two National winners will be chosen from selected regional candidates. Caregiver Award winners will be selected by a national committee of caregivers and health professional organizations, according to such criteria as caregiver strength, commitment to care, community involvement and compassion.  One deserving nominee will also be selected to win the Canada Cares One Wish Award, worth $10,000, sponsored by We Care Home Health Services. The Canada Cares One Wish Award will be evaluated on the strength of the caregiver’s commitment to care, the creativity of the response regarding how the $10,000 would be used, and the level of need. “The number of caregivers in Canada is rapidly increasing, with current estimates pegged at over five million,” said Caroline Tapp-McDougall, Chair of Canada Cares. “It’s time to support and recognize caregivers from coast to coast for their tireless, selfless efforts to help improve the lives of others.” Nominations, which can be submitted online, by mail or by video, will be accepted until September 30, with winners announced in November. For details on how to nominate a caregiver, visit www.canadacares.org.   About Canada Cares (www.canadacares.org)Canada Cares is a not-for-profit program that involves a virtual community, grassroots events, and caregiver coaching program. It has been created through a unique partnership between healthcare organizations and businesses across the country, including Canadian Red Cross, Saint Elizabeth Health Care, The Canadian Abilities Foundation, Kohler Canada, MV-1 Canada, Zoomer Wireless, Stroke Recovery Canada, We Care Home Health Services, Lifestage Care,  Invacare Corporation, Spectrum Health Care, Ability Online, Canadian Caregiver Coalition, Alzheimer Society of Toronto, Caregiving Matters, Brain Injury Association of Canada and many others. About We Care (www.wecare.ca)We Care Home Health Services, a leading national provider of in-home care and support services with over 50 locations across Canada, provides professional and compassionate care that allows seniors and others to live independently in the comfort of their own homes in over 800 communities across Canada.

When film critic Roger Ebert died April 4, he was lauded for many things – his versatility, longevity, savvy, wit. But one virtue in particular stood out. As Chicago photographer Art Shay put it, “Even with movies he panned, he invariably found something worth going to see in them.”

Take his review of a film that regularly made his “worst films” lists: Adam Sandler’s The Waterboy. Ebert called Sandler’s character “insufferable,” described the plot as an “exhausted wheeze of a sports movie formula,” and gave the film one star.

Nevertheless, he praised the performance of actress Kathy Bates, writing that she “makes her character work as a comic creation, and knows the line between parody and wretched excess.” And he resisted the urge to hurl insults at Sandler. Instead, he wrote, “I suggest he (Sandler) is making a tactical error when he creates a character whose manner and voice has the effect of fingernails on a blackboard, and then expects us to hang in there for a whole movie.”

What Ebert demonstrated in that review and countless others is what the critic Judith Crist called mutual regard, and she included it as one of her four essential elements of any good work of criticism. (The other three are passion, frankness, and specificity.)

Mutual regard, she said, is showing respect for the creator of any work you’re evaluating, as well as respect for your readers.

When Crist talked of mutual regard, you never suspected the notoriously acerbic critic was trying to tell other would-be reviewers, “You kids play nice.” Rather, she cautioned writers to balance their obligation to be honest, even blunt, about a work’s quality with their obligation to acknowledge the effort, and struggle, invested in it by fellow artists.

In her famous review panning the 1963 Elizabeth Taylor-Richard Burton film Cleopatra, Crist identified a litany of its failures: The script: “a mélange of clichés and pompous banalities.” The sets: “Cardboard and paint.” Liz Taylor: “Fishwife.”

But even though the movie was a four-hour epic that she called an “extravagant exercise in tedium,” she still found much to praise: the “lilting speech of Richard Burton;” the “fine performances” in minor roles by Roddy McDowell and Rex Harrison; the costumes that were “nothing short of sensational.”

And she conceded some moviegoers would enjoy the film. “Certainly,” she wrote, “if you want to devote the best part of four hours to looking at Elizabeth Taylor in all her draped and undraped physical splendor, surrounded by elaborate and exotic costumes and sets, all in the loveliest of colors, this is your movie.”

Though we don’t always identify it as such, mutual regard is something Gotham teachers train our students to use. When Gotham students are workshopping something, they must open their comments by identifying one thing that works in the piece they are reviewing. We don’t require this solely to put writers at ease in our classrooms, nor because writers often struggle to identify what works in their own writing, though both of those are true. We require it because mutual regard is essential to editing one’s own work, to reading the work of others, and to becoming a successful writer.

Mutual regard shows that you recognize the inherent merit in creating a work of art. It gives readers a sense of where your standards lie, as it allows them to compare your evaluations of what works against your evaluations of what does not. And it lends you authority, by demonstrating that you have put thought into your evaluations, and weighed things fairly.

We live in an age of ever-more criticism – a cursory search for reviews of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby, for example, yielded 40,900 results, and that doesn’t count the opinions we’ll hear on Facebook or Twitter or out to dinner with friends. Writers who manage to rise above the noise, as Crist and Ebert did, understand that mutual regard is key, because ultimately it cultivates between writer and reader something crucial – trust.

Cheers,

The Care and Treatment of Sacred Things, Part I
by Kelly Caldwell

It’s usually the first question on the first day of my New York City Memoir workshops: “Can you talk… about drawing from your life experience to write, and discovering that which is sacred and off-limits material?”

Only this time, it came not from a novice student, but through my iPod headphones from a veteran writer and host of the radio show, Writers on Writing (KUCI-FM, Irvine, California). And as Marrie Stone put the question to Molly Gloss, her novelist guest, she fused “sacred” and “off-limits” into a single term, winding the ideas together like the twin strands of DNA.

I expect this concern in my level 1 workshops, from writers eager to tell their stories but unwilling to sacrifice something precious in the process. Hearing it posed by a professional like Stone, though, I knew: Not only fledgling writers believe that when something is sacred to you, writing about it could be sacrilege. (Continue reading.)


This past week we started asking our Facebook fans some writerly questions. Maybe you read them—maybe you even answered some.

THE QUESTION: What’s your favorite guilty pleasure movie?
Our favorite answer was from Sara Johnston: “Independence Day. Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman: what’s not to love?” (Yes! And don’t forget Harry Connick, Jr.—kick the tires and light the fires.)

We also loved Rosalie Capri’s response: “Sixteen Candles…auto-mo-bile.”
(We’re sure the actor who played Long Duk Dong would be proud.)

THE QUESTION: Name an author, dead or alive, who you’d like to sit next to on an airplane.
With more than 100 responds, this was a tough one to decide.
Here are our top three:

Jennifer Allen wrote, “William Golding in the window seat and Aldous Huxley in the aisle. I’d gladly suffer the middle seat for that flight.”

“Jane Austen—I really hate her work so I’d be interested for her to try to explain what I’m missing,” wrote Tom Peach.
(Let’s face it: Austen’s Mr. Darcy simply doesn’t exist off the page.)

Janel Blessing added, “Truman Capote. We’d get airplane drunk.”
(That would be an entertaining flight for sure.)

THE QUESTION: What is one book you’ve never been able to finish?
Anna Setti wrote, “Anna Karenina. She got on my nerves.”
(At least Anna’s no Scarlett O’Hara or Amanda Wingfield.)

Want to join the conversation? Like us on Facebook.


Annie Proulx writes literary fiction brilliant enough to win major accolades and accessible enough to win a wide audience. She specializes in short stories, including “Brokeback Mountain.” She didn’t begin writing until her 50s, and as you’ll see, she doesn’t believe in rushing things.

Here’s a peek at what the author of The Shipping News advises:

  1. Proceed slowly and take care.
  2. To ensure that you proceed slowly, write by hand.

Continue reading. 


Are you ready to get Lit?

Gotham is hosting an event at Lit Crawl NYC on Saturday, May 18 in Brooklyn. We’ll be stationed at Ceol, an awesome Irish pub in Cobble Hill (191 Smith Street, between Baltic & Warren Streets) from 6:15-7:00pm.

For those of you who have enjoyed our Write-Ins these past few months, we’ll be doing something similar – only built for a much larger audience.

So come out, drink up, and write.


 


Every two weeks, Gotham’s Brandi Reissenweber answers questions submitted by readers of The Writer magazine. Here are some of the questions that she’s recently answered:

Q: I usually find ideas from real life that would make great short stories. How can I make it fiction instead of just retelling the real event? Answer

Q: Do I really need to bother with a cover letter when submitting my short stories? Answer

Supporting Small Businesses in Eastern Ontario

May 14, 2013

Ontario Government Fosters Regional Economic Growth to Create Jobs

Premier Kathleen Wynne visited Anchor Concrete in Kingston today, where she highlighted the government’s commitment to supporting small businesses, allowing them to create more jobs and support regional economic growth.

The new 2013 Budget includes an increase to the Employer Health Tax (EHT) exemption, which would bring relief to small businesses and make it easier for them to hire new employees.

If the Budget bill is passed and proclaimed, the exemption would be increased from $400,000 to $450,000 beginning Jan. 1, 2014.  This would have a positive impact for more than 60,000 employers across Ontario, including 12,000 that would no longer pay EHT.

The government is also supporting regional economic growth through initiatives such as the Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF) and the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund (SWODF), which support local companies, promote regional economic development and enhance Ontario’s overall economic competitiveness.

Through the 2013 Budget, the government wants to create jobs and support regional economies, while helping people with their everyday lives.

QUICK FACTS

  • If the proposed Employer Health Tax exemption is implemented, 88 per cent of Ontario private sector employers would not pay EHT nor incur the compliance costs of filing an EHT return.
  • Since it launched in 2008, the EODF has helped to create and protect more than 14,000 jobs in eastern Ontario. The EODF was made permanent in October, 2012.
  • Following the success of the EODF, the government launched the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund in October, 2012. It has helped to create and protect 2,200 jobs.

QUOTES

“We want companies like Anchor Concrete to be able to hire new employees and keep driving Ontario’s economic growth. Increasing the Employer Health Tax exemption and investing in regional support programs like the EODF are an important part of our plan to help businesses expand and create more jobs.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario
“We are focused on fostering a strong business environment with a competitive tax system. This will help small businesses across the province grow, create more jobs and ultimately strengthen Ontario’s economy.”
— Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment
“Our government is working to make sure every part of this province can prosper. That’s why I’m pleased to be here with Premier Wynne to outline our government’s plan to support small businesses in Kingston and the Islands and across the province. We are doing everything we can to help people in their everyday lives.”
— John Gerretsen, MPP, Kingston and the Islands

Minister Matthews Statement on Mammography in Ontario‏

Minister Matthews Statement on Mammography in Ontario

May 14, 2013

Today, Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, made the following statement regarding the release of a new study on mammography screening technology: A new peer-reviewed study by Cancer Care Ontario senior scientist Dr. Anna Chiarelli,   published today in the journal Radiology, shows that direct radiography (DR) mammograms and screen-film mammograms are better at detecting breast cancer than computed radiography (CR) mammograms. CR mammography is used for approximately 20 per cent of mammograms in Ontario.

Ontario is committed to being a world leader in cancer care, which is why our government is making changes based on this new information and the advice of our experts. With the support of health care providers, Ontario will phase out CR devices across Ontario over the coming months.

To support this transition, our government is making a $25 million investment to replace all CR devices with new DR devices to ensure women continue to get the most effective screening for breast cancer using the best technology available. Cancer Care Ontario has issued a request for proposals to procure new DR devices and clinics will also be able to choose to purchase replacements on their own. We will work with health care providers to ensure the best possible care for women over the transition period, and co-ordinate the replacement of CR devices to ensure that care needs are met.

I want women to know that regular mammograms remain the best way to detect breast cancer, and that the chance of having an undiagnosed cancer using CR technology is extremely low. Women with questions about how the changes affect them are encouraged to contact the site where they were last screened, their primary health care provider, or Cancer Care Ontario.”

QUICK FACTS

  • In Ontario, 88 per cent of women are alive and well five years after the diagnosis of breast cancer.
  • A list of all sites that offer breast mammography is available at www.cancercare.on.ca/mammogram.
  • Women can also contact Cancer Care Ontario at 1-800-668-9304 for more information.

Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services – Home Security Audit Guide

“People tend to think of burglary in strictly physical terms – as illegal access to your home, items taken and/or items destroyed.

But burglary can have a significant impact on a person’s mental well-being. Burglary victims often speak of a sense of violation. This can lead to feelings of fear, anger and emotional distress, particularly in children and the elderly. To protect your loved ones, your property and your home, you are encouraged to improve the security in and around your home!

This Home Security Audit Guide provides general information about keeping your home secure. It provides guidance about taking precautions to reduce the risk of burglary around your home. Inexpensive and do-it-yourself suggestions are provided to help you maximize the security of your home. For further information and assistance, you or your community group may want to contact your local police service or crime prevention association.”

To arrange a free, personal home security audit call your local Division’s Crime Prevention Officer.  For 11 Division home and business owners please call416-808-1108.

Just don’t call it yellow, say Dulux experts – study shows names like vanilla, buttercup preferred

TORONTO, ON (March 28, 2013) – It may not be our favourite colour, but when it comes to painting our walls, yellow is the number one choice worldwide.

That’s the finding of an international survey conducted on behalf of leading paint brand Dulux® paint. The study shows that while blue is the most popular colour in the world, preferred by 36 per cent of people, the picture changes when you look at actual sales volume of paint colours.

Toronto based firm Share Lawyers are deviating from the standard behavior expected from personal injury lawyer, by offering victims of personal injury and trauma the opportunity to find out where they stand before being obligated to act. Share Lawyers are offering free online consultations, as well as customized advice and support without charging a penny until the case is filed, fought and won.

WireService.ca Press Release – 03/27/2013 – Toronto – Their online consultation system is tailored to the victim’s individual situation, meaning that those affected can seek advice for personal injury; insurance dispute claims, disability claims and car accidents, all of which have a consultant on hand to offer specialized advice on whether or not the potential claimant should proceed. The anonymity and ease of use offered make the system a helpful and convenient service for those who are dabbling with filing a claim, but are perhaps daunted by the process or unsure if it is worth pursuing.

Ontario Serves Up Local Food Bill

March 25, 2013

Supporting Ontario’s Agri-Food Sector, From Farm to Fork

The new Ontario government is re-introducing legislation today that, if passed, would help make more local food available in markets, schools, cafeterias, grocery stores and restaurants throughout the province.

If passed, the Local Food Act would:

 

  • Increase local food awareness, access and sales by setting local food goals and targets in consultation with stakeholders
  • Enable government to work with public sector organizations toward these goals and share information on their progress and results
  • Proclaim a “Celebrate Ontario Local Food Week” that would begin the Monday before Thanksgiving
  • Require the government to produce a local food report on its activities to support local food

 

 

The proposed legislation is part of a broader local food strategy that encourages the growth and development of markets for foods grown and made in Ontario, and provides funding for innovative and collaborative local food projects.

Promoting local food is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to strengthen the agri-food industry, build stronger communities and create jobs that will grow the economy.

QUICK FACTS

  • The province will hold consultations with stakeholders on a new provincial designation system that could help promote foods of a particular region, standard of production, or unique product attribute.
  • The Ontario agri-food sector contributes more than $34 billion to the provincial economy and employs more than 700,000 people.
  • Ontario’s food processors purchase about 65 per cent of the good things that are produced on the province’s farms.
  • Ontario is home to Canada’s largest food processing sector.

QUOTES

“Eating local isn’t just good for Ontario families – it’s good for our economy. That’s why our government will continue to work with the agri-food sector, including retailers and food service operators, to bring more Ontario food to the table.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier and Minister of Agriculture and Food
