Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown may be ally over opposition to neonic-treated seeds.
Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown may be ally for the Grain Farmers of Ontario and other farmers who oppose neonic-treated seeds.
Brown you may recall was elected as the M-P-P for Simcoe North in last week's provincial by-election.
During the campaign, the other candidates were asked to share their views on how the government handled the regulation of neonic-treated seeds.
Brown's response argued the political objectives of the Liberals trumped science -- and he called the regulations heavy handed.
Tweed Marijuana has agreed to buy MedCannAccess in a deal Tweed says will make it the first Canadian medical marijuana producer to have direct, face-to-face contact with its clients.
MedCannAccess opened its three community access centres in Ontario roughly a year ago -- in order to help patients through the process of registering with a licensed marijuana producer.
Tweed will also acquire from MedCannAccess a 33 per cent stake in CannScience Innovations -- a health science research company that is working with marijuana extracts to provide precise, standardized doses of medicinal cannabis.
McDonald's says it will switch to cage-free eggs in Canada and the U-S over the next decade.
Under pressure to revive slumping sales, McDonald's has already announced a number of changes under new CEO Steve Easterbrook.
Those include a switch to chickens raised without most antibiotics.
And in April, the fast food giant said it would raise pay for workers at company-owned stores.
The decision to switch to cage-free eggs, meanwhile, signals a growing sensitivity among customers to animal welfare issues.
