“Delaney is an experienced leader who understands the importance of providing value back to farmers. Her background in research, communications and extensive agriculture network will make her an asset to the organization,” said Chuck Fossay, MCGA president, in a news release on Friday.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the MCGA team, sharing in the great work that Bill Ross and the staff have established in Manitoba, in order to contribute to the continued advancement of canola research and productivity on behalf of Manitoba’s canola growers,” said Ross Burtnack.
