TWORA: Ag Makes its Way into #Elxn41, StatsCan Numbers, & Big Changes Ahead for RealAgriculture


It’s the first week of September and the west is waking up to some frosty mornings, while Ontario watches how high temps can climb with a humidex.

This week has been a rather big one for many, as kids head back to school, harvest kicks into high gear, and, yes, our editor, Lyndsey Smith, has announced she’s moving on.
