Farmers Encouraged To Get In Touch With Candidates

The national group representing Canada's beef producers is encouraging all farmers to get in touch with their candidates during the federal election campaign.
 
Canadian Cattlemen's Association Senior Manager of Government and International Relations, Fawn Jackson, says it's important to let them know there's people in their riding in the beef sector and the agriculture industry as a whole.
 
"I think that's also, as a general citizen, a good thing to undertake," she said. "Reach out to your candidate, let them know you're position, and I'm sure it'll be a good dialogue."
 
Jackson says it makes future conversations about the industry's needs even easier.
 
Canadians hit the polls on Monday, October 21.
