Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Ontario election - Toronto votes liberal and country votes conservative. What will this mean for the next four years?

I think a lot of people were surprised by the Liberal majority election results.

This photo shows that most rural people voted conservative.

I am very disappointed in the Hudak campaign and terrible performance of the conservatives.

The following diagrams show the story.

Any others think this will go badly for rural and agriculture policies?

Who will be the next Ontario Agriculture Minister?

Mark Wales of the OFA said some experienced rural Liberal voices that come to his mind as possible agriculture ministers from the last legislature include:

  • Jeff Leal (Peterborough): Rural affairs minister.
  • Dave Levac (Brant): Speaker of the legislature.
  • Grant Crack (Glengarry-Prescott-Russell): Parliamentary assistant in ag and rural affairs and Francophone affairs
  • Ted McMeekin (Ancaster — Dundas — Flamborough — Westdale): Minister of community and social services; previous portfolio was ag and rural affairs
  • Lou Rinaldi (Northumberland-Quinte West): Former parliamentary assistant to the agriculture, food and rural affairs minister.

From the Globe and Mail:

Rural Affairs Minister Jeff Leal will stay in place, but will gain the agriculture portfolio from Ms. Wynne, who personally took it on in an effort to mend fences with rural residents upset at the Liberals' construction of wind turbines in the countryside.
