Federal Elections 2021 : See the Agriculture Leaders Debate

The Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) hosted the Agriculture Leaders’ Debate on September 9th. The debate brought together national parties to question them on the pressing issues affecting Canadian agriculture today.

Participants for the debate included:

New Democratic Party of Canada – MP Alistair MacGregor, Critic for Agriculture & Agri-Food
Bloc Québécois – MP Yves Perron, Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food
Conservative Party of Canada – MP Dave Epp
Liberal Party of Canada – The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture & Agri-Food

The debaters had an animated and lively discussion, where they laid out their vision for the future of Canadian agriculture and how their parties would deal with current issues in the sector. While all four parties were supportive of Canada’s agriculture sector, they differed in their visions of its future and how to help the sector achieve its potential.

The questions covered three key areas for Canadian agriculture: Economic growth, the environment & climate change, and infrastructure. Questions also touched on risk management programming, disaster relief, supply management and more.
