There’s plenty to discuss surrounding Prime Minister Trudeau’s first in-person visit with President Trump, including what the President meant when he referred to “tweaking” the Canada-U.S. trade relationship under NAFTA.

Former Agriculture Minister, now Tory trade critic, Gerry Ritz joins host Kelvin Heppner to discuss the Trudeau-Trump meeting.

From Germany, Shaun catches up with Dr. Bart Lambert, who developed the pod shatter reduction trait used in Bayer’s canola varieties.

As Kelvin notes, it’s also a special day today, for reasons unrelated to chocolate or flowers.

Catch RealAg Radio tomorrow at 3pm central from CropConnect in Winnipeg on Rural Radio Channel 147 on SiriusXM!
