Essex MPP calls for Queen’s Park to switch ketchups


Special to the RTT

Essex MPP Taras Natyshak has tabled a petition at Queen’s Park requesting that the dining room and cafeteria at Queen’s Park switch from Heinz to French’s ketchup.

The petition reads:
“Therefore be it resolved that the Speaker direct the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, as part of its Procurement Policy direct Dana Hospitality to exclusively serve Leamington French’s Ketchup.”

“This is an opportunity for Queen’s Park to demonstrate leadership and support local production and industry through our procurement policy. I am asking everyone to sign the paper version of this petition which will be located through Windsor Essex County and at my Constituency office as well as on my website under the Petitions tab,” said Natyshak.

The NDP MPP said he hopes to gather as many signatures as he can from across Ontario.
Natyshak is currently touring Southwestern Ontario as part of his economic development tour and is the Ontario NDP critic for Economic Development, Trade and Infrastructure and Employment. He has met with greenhouse vegetable growers in Leamington on the matter.
