RealAg Radio, Mar. 5: China blocks Richardson canola, ag minister credentials, and a look at the markets


It’s been a crazy 24 hours, let alone past week in Canadian politics. Although unsure if politics played a role, word got out this morning that China has blocked Richardson International Ltd.’s canola exports. That’s just one topic of many covered in today’s RealAg Radio segment of News with Guse with news lead Jessika Guse and Ontario field editor Lyndsey Smith.

Also on the show today, host Shaun Haney gives his thoughts on what type of background someone should have before becoming minister in charge of agriculture. This topic came about after a listener emailed Haney asking if it matters for an ag minister to have an agricultural background or not.

Then to wrap up show, Haney invites Jon Driedger on to talk all about the markets, with a focus on what’s happening in the oilseed market.
