Kathleen Wynn Video Interview: This morning I was at Henry of Pelham in St. Catharines to see an innovative piece of technology.

This morning I was at Henry of Pelham in St. Catharines to see an innovative piece of technology. It seems a bit surprising that a winery would be the place to look for innovative tech, but ‎the small environmental monitoring device they're using will give the winery a big boost in production.The project is the impressive result of a collaboration between Henry of Pelham, BeWhere, Huawei, and Bell‎, and it's international partnerships like this that are the reason I go on trade missions. They create innovative opportunities here in Ontario. I'll be travelling to China and Vietnam later this month with over 100 delegates, and I can't wait to see the opportunities and partnerships that grow out of this mission. ‎
