NDP takes shot at Clark government with agriculture committee
The NDP is putting together its own committee on agriculture. They’re calling it the Opposition Standing Committee on Agriculture and Food. The name is a shot at the Clark government, which did away with the legislature’s committee on the topic.
Powell River Sunshine Coast MLA Nicholas Simons is one of the 5 NDP MLAs who will make up the new Committee.
Simons says the NDP is setting up a special website for the committee, and it’s going to tour the province to hear people’s concerns about the government’s agriculture policies.
