Hoback Thanks the Hon. Gerry Ritz For His Public Service
PRINCE ALBERT – Randy Hoback, Member of Parliament for Prince Albert and Chair of the Conservative Saskatchewan Caucus issued the following statement on the Honourable Gerry Ritz’s retirement:
“I wish Gerry all the best in his retirement and thank him for everything that he has done for farmers both here in our home province and across Canada. He is a good friend and I enjoyed working with him on behalf of Saskatchewanians and all Canadians.
“He made the lives of Canadian farmers better and brought about the structural change needed to make agriculture a profitable and lucrative career for Canadians young and old. The marketing freedom that he secured for wheat and barley, in addition to the many trade agreements that he helped negotiate, have enabled young entrepreneurs to embrace agriculture again.
“Because of Gerry’s leadership as Minister of Agriculture for almost a decade, it is now cool to be a farmer in Canada.
“It was an honour to serve Canadians alongside Gerry and his public service has truly made Canada a better place to raise a family and earn a living.”
