Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

How long until they select a new Ontario Agriculture Minister? Is there any good elected Liberal possibilities for the position?

I was visiting the OMAFRA website yesterday and noticed Carol Mitchell was still on it as the Minister.


I started to think about who might replace her and when.  I am not familiar with the other elected members of the Liberal party.  Are there any farmers from other ridings?  I know alot of rural ridings went PC so we should have some knowledgeable agri critics like Ernie Hardemann.


Any thoughts on this issue?

Rumors are flying its Ted McMeekin but I have not seen confirmation.
Sorry. Should have read the next posting in the forum.  FARMS does say that Mr. McMeekin is our new Minister.
