PEI Potato Truck leaves Island for Parliament Hill

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - A truck load of fresh PEI potatoes – 6,000 bags – departed from Charlottetown yesterday at 6 p.m. on the 1,300-plus kilometre journey to Ottawa where they will join representatives from the Island's potato industry in a grassroots and broad coalition of groups supporting the cause of PEI potato farmers in the face of a two-week major trade issue.

Representatives from Island potato farms will join provincial government and industry leaders to hand out potatoes to the general public in an effort to highlight the reciprocal affection between farmers and their supporters, coast to coast to coast, who have been expressing their mutual concern and solidarity over the ongoing ban on exports of PEI Potatoes to the U.S.
