David Anderson – Committee Evidence AGRI 54

Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food

We just have a short period of time here.

You talked about the importance of being able to own the land. I think there was testimony at the last meeting that 40% of land is currently rented in Saskatchewan and other places. Leased land and those kinds of things are available.

I’m just wondering about your perspective. Do you feel it’s critical that the producers own the land? I’d throw that over to Ryan as well, because he is a producer as well. If the folks in the middle want to answer that, that’s fine, but I’m just interested in hearing from producers. Is it essential that we own that land as producers or not?
