Chamber attends Peterborough Day at Queen's Park

President and CEO Stuart Harrison and Policy Analyst Sandra Dueck attended the event, which was started by MPP Jeff Leal in 2003, on Thursday, May 19, 2016. 

The day included sitting in on Question Period and being acknowledged by Minister Leal for being in the audience, as well as chatting with senior staff, MPPs and Ministers, including Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca.  

Stu also spoke eastern Ontario economic development with Carol Kim, Senior Advisor on Strategic Initiatives to Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Jeff Leal. 

It's not just agriculture, it's the business of agriculture. For example, local distiller Persian Empire buys 100s of thousands of litres of milk locally for their yogurt drink, which they distribute broadly.
