Join Us In Celebration Of The Hon. Gerry Ritz

Last September, a proud son of Saskatchewan and hard-working public servant announced his retirement from public life. Saskatchewan will miss the Hon. Gerry Ritz. 

Gerry made the lives of Canadian farmers better and brought about the structural change needed to make agriculture a profitable and lucrative career for Canadians young and old. The marketing freedom that he secured for wheat and barley, in addition to the many trade agreements that he helped negotiate, enabled young entrepreneurs to embrace agriculture again.

No longer would grain farmers go to jail for donating their grain to 4H groups in North Dakota; nor would they lose ownership of their wheat and barley crop as soon as it was harvested.

Because of Gerry’s leadership as Minister of Agriculture, the marketing of western grain entered the 21st century. Thanks to his leadership, the combined value of all wheat and canola now exceeds $11.6 billion.

Gerry's public service has truly made Canada a better place to raise a family and earn a living. I wish him all the best in his retirement and thank him for everything that he has done for farmers both here in our home province and across Canada.

Please join us in our celebration of the Hon. Gerry Ritz, PC, former federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.
