For roughly 2.5 hours, Premier Scott Moe, assisted by MLAs Daryl Harrison (Cannington) and Steven Bonk (Moosomin) took questions from the floor at a town hall meeting in Arcola. The session continued until they basically ran out of questions.

The question from Murray Henderson of Alameda asks about how Ceres Global Ag recently suspended its planned $350 million canola crushing plant at Northgate, and how it may have been lost due to the federal carbon tax. Moe and Bonk touched on recognizing the innovation in zero tillage and how agriculture should be recognized as a carbon sink. Listen to the end to hear a rather comical interaction Moe had with Catherine McKenna when he was environment minister and she was the federal environment minister.

Here’s that portion of the town hall, unedited.
