A weekend with the NFU youth

Spending four days at the NFU youth gathering in beautiful Nanoose Bay, Vancouver Island has cemented in my mind that returning to the farm was the right decision for me to make. It is difficult to find words to express my amazement at the brilliance of each one of the NFU youth from all over Canada. I truly feel that there is hope for the future, and I am honoured to be involved with such an inspirational group of people.

Dear Premier Clark:
 
Re: BILL 24, the AGRICULTURAL LAND COMMISSION AMENDMENT ACT, 2014
 
The National Farmers Union (NFU) is deeply concerned about the changes to the Agricultural Land Commission Act that your government is proposing through BILL 24, the AGRICULTURAL LAND COMMISSION AMENDMENT ACT, 2014. We have prepared the following brief which we urge you to consider before taking any further steps to change BC’s farmland protection legislation.
 
The NFU represents thousands of farm members in Canada, from coast to coast.
