The political urban-rural divide ran through the centre of the International Plowing Match on Tuesday.
Premier Kathleen Wynne and her almost entirely urban Liberal caucus were heckled by visitors to the opening day of the annual fair.
“You guys are all from Toronto,” yelled a man from the Sarnia area, who refused to give his name, as the Liberal float went by.
