Calgary, AB – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) welcomes the return of The Honourable Gerry Ritz, as Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. Continuity in this key position is critical for the nearly 90,000 Canadian beef cattle producers who require successful resolution of several critical domestic and international issues facing their industry.
With the federal election now behind us, we hope producers continue to take the opportunity to keep MPs informed on issues facing Canada’s beef and cattle industry. Keep the facts at your fingertips with the Federal Candidate Information Sheet, available on the CCA website. At the same time, check out the federal Conservative and Liberal Parties responses to these key issues prior to the election.
