After I wrote an editorial piece on Kathleen Wynne’s absence at the GFO meeting last week (click here for that), many people agreed with my take. In the true spirit of Realagriculture.com, some readers thought I was incorrect and called me out on it.
Long-time RealAgriculture follower Stewart Skinner contacted me and said, “Slow down, there, Mr. Haney. You’re not seeing the big picture.”
Never one to shy away from a good debate, I talked to Stewart to get his thoughts on why he thinks Kathleen Wynne is working hard as Ontario’s agriculture minister, and is being effective for the long term success of Ontario agriculture. In the audio interview below, Stewart outlines why Wynne chose the ag portfolio, the state of food processing in the province, advocating for agriculture in urban circles and even comments on the closing of the University of Guelph’s eastern campuses.
