    More than 400 people attended a rally in Grand Falls, New Brunswick Sunday,  to show support for a potato farmer jailed in Lebanon since March.

    They signed petitions to the governments of Canada, Lebanon and Algeria seeking Henk Tepper's release.

    Liberal foreign affairs critic Dominic Leblanc says a call from the prime minister to Lebanese authorities would bring Henk Tepper home.

    The 44-year-old has been held in a Beirut prison over allegations that potatoes he exported to Algeria in 2007 were rotten.
