The Nexera Thank you Train Makes a Stop to Help Fight Hunger

Last week the Nexera Thank You Train made a stop in Lethbridge, Alberta. The stop is one of many across the west and is a collaboration with Dow AgroSciences and the Grey Cup 100 train and aims to thank Dow’s Nexera Canola growers across the West.

I spoke with Andre Visscher, Alberta’s Regional Coordinator for the CFB in Lethbridge.
