Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Saskatchewan on Thursday – and his visit has included a visit to a farm as well.
He will also meet high school students in Regina later in this day.
His official itinerary includes stops at the Gray, Sask. Recreation Centre and Miller High School in Regina.
Earlier on Thursday, Prime Minister Trudeau spent time with APAS President Todd Lewis – who opened his farm up for the Prime Minister’s media tour.
Trudeau arrived at the farm met with Lewis to discuss agriculture in Saskatchewan and even got some combine lessons.
Lewis tells 620 CKRM News he’s honoured to be chosen to display his farm.
“I think it’s success of the industry,” said Lewis. “And how we can grow it. You know, continue with innovation and improvement of our technology.”
Lewis fulfilled a promise to give the PM a lesson on prairie farming.
“Well, I think the canola-focus is a good news story,” said Lewis. “It’s a big part of the Canadian economy. It’s a big part of the Saskatchewan economy. It’s a big success story. You know, looking for export markets – trade deals are of vital importance to us.”
This is Prime Minister Trudeau’s fourth visit to Saskatchewan since he was elected prime minister in 2015.
Prime Minister Trudeau will also visit the 620 CKRM studios to be on Saskatchewan Agriculture Today at 12:30 pm.
You can hear the exclusive interview at 12:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
