RealAg Radio, Sept. 3: On-farm activism, rural internet service, and agronomy M-uesday


It’s the first day back after the Labour Day weekend, and if you’ve been following the news, it’s been a busy one! Today’s top ag news with RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney and Jessika Guse cover some big topics, including a recent Alberta activism case, a look at the Canadian economy, added tariffs on Chinese goods, and more. This is one you’ll want to listen to!

Guests on today’s show include:

  • Crystal Mackay, former president of the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity and now founder of Loft32, on what rights a farmer actually has, after protestors stormed a turkey farm in Fort Macleod, Alta;
  • Rita Trichur with the Globe and Mail on how Canadian telecoms are cutting back on rural internet service; and
  • Last but not least, seeing as this week didn’t have an agronomy Monday — RealAgriculture’s resident agronomist Peter Johnson joins in to talk all things agronomy.
