From Manitoba and Colorado, today’s show starts off with a discussion on the opioid crisis, with new numbers out showing the impact it’s having, both in urban and rural areas. Then:

  • Today’s ag news, including possible optimism about NAFTA progress, and amendments to the rail bill in Ottawa, which farm groups requested.
  • Jim Wood, chief sales and operating officer with Rocky Mountain Equipment, joins Kelvin in Winkler, Man. to chat about how spring is shaping up in the equipment business.
  • Improvements in grain movement, responding to the Ministers’ letter, and an update on railway demand from other commodities, with David Przednowek of CN.
  • Buy or Sell, the new game segment, covering: soybean and pulse acreage estimates; having a farmer as an ag minister; U.S. dairy access in a new NAFTA; Canada’s carbon tax plan by year end; and the Raptors versus the Cavs.
