Tony Supports Canadian Wineries and Growers in Question Period

Local wineries are an important economic sector in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Niagara Falls, and across our region of Niagara.
Yesterday, I asked the federal government to commit to excluding 100% Canadian grown wines from the new excise tax being implemented on July 1st, if those wines were produced before this date. This new tax is a result of the Liberal’s failure to protect the sector and the 2006 excise exemption which the Conservatives provided, allowing the industry to flourish.
I am proud to stand up for our local wineries and growers. Please watch.
