Minister Ritz Pays Tribute to Eugene Whelan

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz Says Whelan Was a Strong Voice for Canadian Farmers

By ,

Canadian federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz released a statement on Wednesday extending his condolences on the passing of Honourable Eugene Whelan, former minister of agriculture and senator.

“Eugene was a strong voice for Canadian farmers for decades, serving in both municipal and federal politics. As Canada's agriculture minister and in his trademark green Stetson, Eugene was planted firmly on the side of farmers. His more than twelve years as Agriculture Minister serve as a clear testament to the passion and dedication he brought to the job every day,” Ritz said in a statement.

Ritz sends his thoughts and prayers to the Whelan family.
