Wheat Growers seeking new executive director

The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association is starting the process of finding a new executive director.

Robin Speer has moved on to become the manager of public affairs for CN Rail.

Speer joined the Wheat Growers in fall 2015, replacing long-time executive director Blair Rutter.

Priorities for the member-funded organization during Speer’s tenure included speaking against carbon taxes and the federal government’s proposed tax changes, as well as pushing for improved grain transportation and a reduction in the Canadian Grain Commission’s user fee surplus.
