An Ontario government committee today defeated a private
member’s bill to allow fruit wineries to sell their products at farmers’
markets.

Conservative MPP Bob Runciman, who represents
Leeds-Grenville, says the five Liberals on the Legislature’s regulations and
private bills committee voted against each clause of the proposed bill during a
review. “They didn’t explain why. They didn’t even really speak to it. They
just voted against it.”

The committee also has two Conservative and one NDP member.

Runciman, who proposed the bill, says the Liberals sent
