The first link is Dalton McGuinty encouraging his fellow Ontarians to purchase locally grown food. The following link amuses me. Frank is a pretty clever man. When walking to Kensington market, we walked by a place called Fancy Franks Gourmet Hot Dogs (yes, take a moment to let that sink in). As funny as the idea sounds, it’s actually a great idea.

He even has his own apparel!
