Lobbying

Farming issues getting heard on Hill, agricultural lobbying up 50 per cent from last year

Issues surrounding trade and equipment are among the topics agricultural groups want to discuss with the federal government.

Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland and Agriculture Minster Lawrence MacAulay are sought after by members of Canada's agricultural sectors, who have a variety of issues they want to discuss with the federal government. 'High interest in the agriculture and agri-food portfolio is a product of its broad and diverse stakeholder base and shared jurisdiction with the provinces and territories,' Mr. MacAulay said.
