More Farm Groups Weigh In

29 Jul

Handing over the pastures to the provinces isn’t as simple as it looks. This Leader-Post article elaborates:

“Norm Hall, president of APAS, said the umbrella farm organization would like to see the community pastures continue to be managed by the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration and remain in Crown lands.

“Our position hasn’t changed. We’re still pushing for public ownership.” But Hall said the province should delay the transfer of pastures for a year until some of the issues are resolved.

For example, Hall said many of the community pastures contain federal land, which have to be made available to other federal ministries, Crown corporations and provincial departments, then to First Nations through the Treaty Land Entitlement process.”
