Tracey asks why Liberal budget ignores farmers (Mar. 24, 2016)

Mr. Speaker, there they go, a lofty campaign promise on health, another Liberal promise broken.

The budget was also very disappointing for farmers in the agricultural sector. Nothing for farmers who face significant losses under CEDA. Let us compare it to Liberal promises.

The budget slashed research funding; cut new CFIA investments; dropped any mention of the value-added investment fund. The agricultural sector is a pillar of the economy in many regions of our country, including southwestern Ontario.

Why did Liberals break their promise to our nation's farmers?
