While I typically blog about specifically dairy related news, this new headline caught my eye while scanning through the latest ag news.
Dalton Miginty has revamped his cabinet including appointing former MPP of Huron-Bruce, Carol Mitchell as the new agriculture minister. The new face for Ontario agriculture is a step in the right direction, as predecessor Leona Dombrowsky did not leave very big shoes to follow in. I hope with all of the pressing issues in agriculture today that Mitchell will take a fresh proactive approach in addressing them. Mitchell served as the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Agriculture and Food, which is nice to know that she has some experience in agricultural related fields. I believe that it is good for the face of agriculture to bring in some fresh blood with new ideas and get rid of the old.
