EVERYONE IN NOVA SCOTIA, and in the Maritime Provinces, and in Canada–if you want access to fresh wholesome foods, if you don’t believe the government should be handing out monopolies to industrial farms and actively working to shutdown small, local farmers and food sellers, then you need to respond to this, sign the petition and let the useless Nova Scotia government know you’ve had enough.
Liberal government of NS: I suggest you pay attention because if you don’t, as the NDP discovered last election, you can easily be replaced. It’s time for the archaic Natural Products Act–which you’ve been twisting to kill small farms and enable self-serving monopolies like the Turkey Marketing Board–to be stricken. And you’re going to find more and more people siding against you if you keep pandering to big business instead of Nova Scotians. Just keep in mind, Premier McNeil, it only took a couple weeks to get 3000 signatures on this petition . Just imagine how many of us there are around the province and how significantly and how fast we can really mount pressure if you don’t act like you care.
