AG DAY IN VICTORIA
BC Agriculture Counci's annual advocacy event, Ag Day in Victoria, took place on October 25, 2022. B.C. farmers and ranchers travelled from across the province for the first time in three years to emphasize their commitment to bringing healthy and quality food and plants to the homes of British Columbians. 60 farmers, ranchers and agricultural representatives connected with Cabinet Ministers, MLAs and key government staff. 33 meetings were held, including meetings with:
- Hon. Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture, Food & Fisheries
- Hon. Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety
- Hon. George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy
- Hon. Ravi Kahlon, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation
- Hon. Katrine Conroy, Minister of Forests
- Hon. Lisa Beare, Minister of Citzens' Services
This year's discussions focused on rising input costs, farm classification, environment and climate change, and trespassing on farmland. Read more about our key priorites in our leave behind brochure.
