Happy Canada Agriculture Day from Alberta's Agriculture Minister
Feb 16, 2017
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Minister Oneil Carlier has posted a video on Twitter, wishing everyone a happy Canada Agriculture Day.
"From the early, founding days of our province, agriculture has played a very important role in the cultural fabric of our province, as well as the economic well-being and continues to do so. It employs many Albertans right across the province and is an important economic contributor, not only to the province, but to the country as a whole."
Today marks the first ever Canada Agriculture Day. It is meant to celebrate all the good things happening in the industry and to forge closer ties between producers and consumers.
There are thousands of tributes on twitter, a lot of them using the hash tag #thankafarmer.
