Feb. 26, 2019 - Zann: Frost loss funding welcome relief, a little late

Lenore Zann, NDP spokesperson for Agriculture made the following statement on the Frost Loss Program announced today:

"Some farms that were affected by late frosts last year will qualify for some relief under a program announced today by the province.

While the funding is welcome news for many, it is coming late as setting up for the next growing season is well under way. This issue should have been a priority for government and therefore dealt with a lot sooner in order to allow farmers to plan properly."
