Statement on Canada’s Agriculture Day

Please read the statement below from Elizabeth May, MP for Saanich–Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada, regarding Canada’s Agriculture Day:

Today is Canada’s Agriculture Day! Our farmers and producers are crucial for ensuring a sustainable and healthy food supply for Canadians. Agriculture is one of the largest sectors being impacted by the effects of climate change. Farmers need to be supported by their governments as they adopt sustainable practices and build resiliency against a shifting climate and increasingly frequent rates of environmental disasters.”
