Things are at a critical juncture right now…
It's important that we send a message from across Canada using the hashtags #FreeMyGrapes and #CdnPoli that we support the spirit of Bill C-311 which passed with unanimous approval on June 6 in the House of Commons. It has yet to pass the Senate (hopefully by the end of June) and then the provinces will have to implement it.
Saying what this bill means to your business, what it means to you as a consumer, what it means to raising the awareness of all Canadian wine, and whatever else you can think of, are all messages that need to get to politicians in Canada loud and clear. Tell your friends who value Canadian wines to get on the chat during the hours listed and be vocal!
Note: If you only have room for one hashtag choose #FreeMyGrapes as we want it to TREND NATIONWIDE!
