Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise today to recognize a very important event taking place this week in my riding of Perth--Wellington.
The 32nd Annual Ontario Pork Congress is under way and the always popular event is showcasing the pork industry with the theme “Strive to Thrive in 2005”.
The pork congress is a festive event which profiles the future of the industry while celebrating the past. It is a great mix of tradition and innovation.
This past Saturday, I joined Ontario pork producers at their gala dinner in Stratford. I want to extend my best wishes to President John Crowley and all of the pork producers and suppliers attending this week's pork congress.
I ask members to please join me in recognizing Ontario's pork industry and the safe and delicious food it produces.
