Bill is 59, has a degree in agricultural engineering and farms with other family members producing canola, cereals and pulses. He has been active in farm and community organizations including three terms as an elected director of the CWB, which provided him with a wealth of experience in governance, finance, policy and communication. He was a longtime credit union board president and continues to serve as a director.
Bill has always put farmers’ interests first and he believes that to be the key consideration for every decision taken by the directors of the MCGA. MCGA collects substantial funds that should be used for the benefit of farmers and to increase farmers’ leverage in the canola value chain where they are otherwise relatively powerless.
Bill will work to enhance MCGA’s good work in support of research and market development as well as to provide farmers with useful and independent information on agronomy, variety performance, marketing and transportation. He asks for your support.
