FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

“Today’s announcement fails to meet the needs of farmers who have been asking the government for help for months.” said MP Arnold Viersen. “We have repeatedly called on the Trudeau Liberals to take strong action including reforming BRM programs & implementing a temporary cattle set-aside. When food security should be a priority, the Liberals are sprinkling water on a burning farm house.”
