There’s energy in Brandon, MB for Day 1 of #TechTourLIVE. Co-hosts Shaun Haney and Kelvin Heppner take some time away from the excitement to cover:
- Soil moisture on the prairies.
- Top Ag News.
- Dear Doug Ford — RealAgriculture’s Lyndsey Smith joins the show to discuss her open letter to the new leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.
- Where do we go from here with the grain backlog? Is there a solution? Pulse Canada’s chief operating officer Greg Cherewyk joins the show.
Join us for RealAg Radio every weekday at 4 pm eastern on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM.
Please read FB friends not working directly in agriculture. This letter do not just apply for Ontario or Mr Ford… https://t.co/T1hgXDabXo

Why is removing the rail revenue cap not apart of this discussion? Mixed feedback on that question from @realagriculture audience

Its difficult for Eastern Canadian farmers to relate to this, as cash markets and grain movement so different in Ontario and Quebec, but in Western Canada, its the life blood~someday gotta get a solution which grows with our agricultural productivity

Let’s get C49 in place with the recommended amendments first hey it working then perhaps a discussion on MRE’s is warranted #moveourgrain

I’m not opposed to the railways making money but letting them price gouge because it’s a duopoly is not something AG can accept.
