Buy local movement now on the map - Brantford Expositor - Ontario, CA: "Brant MPP Dave Levac said that the group behind the map represents an example of a grassroots movement that moved the message upward through the system.
'We've heard you and we're responding,' he said.
He delighted the gathering by announcing that the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs has approved a $45,000 grant toward the project's $90,000 budget.
'This is not simply a whim, it's a science,' Levac said of the map and other features in the ongoing project to promote local agriculture. 'It's also tourism and an economy that we've lost track of and we have to get it back.'
Sandra Vos, co-ordinator of the Bountiful Brant project and vice-president of the Brant County Federation of Agriculture, thanked Levac for the province's support.
Excellent example of a green project that is win -win -win . Congratulations to all who made this a reality for Brant - PR "
