Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Arva Flour Mill located in the County of Middlesex in the Municipality of Middlesex Centre has operated a safe milling operation for 197 years;
  • The Arva Flour Mill is an important historical and tourist destination;
  • The future of the Arva Flour Mill has been put into question following a Canada Labour Code Inspection, resulting in certain compliance orders, the cost of which to mitigate are prohibitive to the owners; and
  • Workplace safety is important to all Canadians.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Recognize the Arva Flour Mill as an important historical and tourism destination; and
2. Exempt the Arva Flour Mill from the Canadian Labour Code.
