Mr. Speaker, what a pleasure it is to rise today to announce the groundbreaking of the world class Chatham ethanol plant next Friday. Ethanol will provide new prosperity for corn growers and it will boost Ontario's economy.
The first phase of the ethanol plant will start next week, through the efforts of many, especially our minister of agriculture.
Ethanol is a win-win proposal for our environment, farmers and long term economic growth.
I am equally proud of this government's intestinal fortitude and determination to ban MMT, the nasty American fuel additive. Alternative fuels are the wave of the future. I urge all hon. members to fill their vehicles with MMT free ethanol.
