NDP calls for Ottawa to protect produce farmers

"NDP Trade Critic Tracey Ramsey has tabled a motion in the House of Commons demanding the federal government develop a payment protection program for produce growers similar to the American Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA).

'It's about protecting family farms, about protecting those producers...' Ramsey said at a joint press conference with NDP Agriculture Critic Ruth Ellen Brosseau."
