Thanksgiving Message From the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 7, 2005) - Thanksgiving is a time when Canadians gather together to celebrate the considerable bounty of our harvest and to reflect on our good fortune.

As you prepare to gather with family and friends this year, I hope you will join me in expressing appreciation to the thousands of Canadian farmers and farm families for the valuable contribution they make to your Thanksgiving dinner.

Our agriculture and food sector enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the best in the world, thanks in large part to the commitment of our producers to work closely with the Government of Canada, provincial and territorial governments and industry groups.

I am very proud of our agricultural producers. By producing an abundance of nutritious foods, they contribute to the health and quality of life of all Canadians.
