KAP president steps down to seek federal Conservative nomination

The president of Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP) has resigned his post to seek a nomination for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Dan Mazier informed the board of directors for the general farm organization in Manitoba about his decision on Friday.

He is seeking the Tory nomination in his home riding of Dauphin—Swan River—Neepawa. Current MP Robert Sopuck announced in early May that he will not be running again in the next federal election.

“I would like to acknowledge my sincere appreciation to all of the staff, executive, board and the members of KAP who have offered support and guidance as we worked through many policies in order to ensure that Manitoba’s farmers’ voices have been heard by our elected officials. It has truly been a privilege to serve as KAP’s President,” says Mazier’s resignation letter.

Mazier has also stepped down from the board of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture.

A grains and oilseeds producer from near Justice, north of Brandon, Mazier was serving the final year of the maximum four year term for KAP’s president position.

KAP’s vice-presidents are Bill Campbell of Minto and Jill Verwey of Portage la Prairie.
