Ministers fail to agree on farm supports

The federal and provincial agriculture ministers have failed to reach agreement on a new package of farm support measures.

They have instead called for further consultations on AgriStability, AgriInvest and AgriInsurance programs.

They did agree on the importance of science, research and innovation, on the importance of markets and trade, on environmental sustainability and climate change and the need to build a firm foundation for public trust.
