Agriculture and Forestry—International Market AccessPublished on 9 March 2017 Hansard and Statements by Senator George Baker (retired)
Hon. George Baker:
Honourable senators, I rise to ask a question concerning agricultural land in Canada. My question is directed to the Chair of the Standing Senate Committee on Agriculture and Forestry. He is here with us today in the chamber. The news reports referenced the committee examining, among other things, foreign ownership of farmland in Canada, the future of farmland as it relates to young farmers and the future of our food supply. Could he inform the Senate on the activities of his committee relating to those subjects recently?
