"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).
NDP MP Tracey Ramsey (Essex) is calling on the Liberal government to introduce a payment protection program for Canadian fresh fruit and vegetable producers, in a motion tabled in Parliament.
Essex is home to many family farmers and fresh fruit and vegetable producers who depend on the ability to export their produce to U.S. buyers.
