Blueberry Lady Busted in Cottage Country

You’ve seen the blueberry stands along Highways 7 and 41 in the Kaladar area and no doubt assumed the berries were locally grown. but, not all of them were. Isobel Wood of Cloyne pleaded guilty to three charges under the Farm Product Grades and Sales Act for misrepresenting the origin of the blueberries which were in “Ontario Fruit” baskets and two other packaging offences. The offences occurred during July of last year at a number of stands operated by Wood. She was fined one-thousand dollars plus a 250-dollar victim surcharge.
