RealAg Radio, Nov 18: COOL, Rail Performance & Could Soil Health Regulations Be On The Way?


It’s Friday already, and we have a lot to discuss on today’s show.

John Masswohl of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association joins Shaun and Kelvin to discuss the odds of whether mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL) could actually be revived if Trump re-opens NAFTA, as has been reported elsewhere.

Wade Sobkowich of the Western Grain Elevator Association discusses grain movement by rail this fall, responding to CP Rail’s criticism directed at him.

We’re also pleased to be joined by Sylvain Charlebois, food market and policy guru from Dalhousie University, discussing new research showing food price volatility is leading Canadians to change their grocery-shopping behaviour…

And could Ontario farmers face regulations on soil health? Lyndsey joins Shaun to discuss.

Tune in each weekday to SiriusXM’s Rural Radio Channel 147 at 4 p.m. (eastern) to hear the day’s show!
