Members of the Canadian ag sector are taking their concerns about the ongoing port strike in B.C. to the prime minister.
Nineteen organizations representing the livestock, grain and food industries have sent a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau warning him of the effects a prolonged work stoppage could have on agriculture and food.
“A lengthy disruption to this essential service will lead to loss of perishable goods and could have a negative impact on animal welfare,” the July 11 letter says. “Loss of export sales will have a significant and negative effect on our farm families and those employed throughout our supply chain.”
