RealAg Radio, Oct 18: Reactions to tax tweaks and NAFTA woes


With all the talk around the recent North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations, there’s a lot of talk around how the Canadian agriculture industry might never be on the same page. Host Shaun Haney disputes this in his introduction, suggesting we have far more in common than not.

Also in today’s episode:

  • Top Ag News – Canadian music legend Gord Downie of Tragically Hip passes away, wind wreaks havoc across prairies, NAFTA takes a turn for the worse, changes to passive income portion of tax proposal, heat turns up on Minister of Finance Bill Morneau, Gay Lea Foods expands to Alberta, and an update on FCC’s Drive Away Hunger initiative.
  • Matthew Pot, author of Grain Perspectives, on market response (or lack thereof) to NAFTA negotiations.
  • How to properly store diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
  • Ron Bonnett, Canadian Federation of Agriculture, on the federal government’s recent announcements around tax proposals, and NAFTA (is it as bad as it seems?).
