The Ontario agriculture minister will tour the Bonduelle fire site in Tecumseh this afternoon.

Minister Jeff Leal is expected to tour the plant around 2:30pm with Tecumseh Mayor Gary McNamara before holding a news conference at Town Hall at 4pm.

Bonduelle executives are also expected to meet with seasonal employees this afternoon to discuss their role in the operations of the plant moving forward.

Vice President of Operations Rob Anderson is hopeful some canning operations will be back up and running by Wednesday at noon and some employees will be able to get back to work.
