The following statement is attributable to Bill Campbell, president, Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP):
“Farmers rely on a highly efficient transportation system to deliver products to market and receive important shipments. Any challenges to an already strained system can seriously affect the security of Canada’s food supply, and the economic competitiveness of individual farm operations. The Government of Canada must ensure that farmers have timely access to domestic and international markets.”
KAP is Manitoba’s general farm policy organization, providing a unified voice for farmers on issues that affect agriculture.
