In this episode I talk about how Canola originated from Rapeseed and the history behind this amazing plant. Recently a movie about the legal battle between a farmer and Monsanto was released in theaters this past week. Centering around the illegal usage of Roundup Ready Canola by Percy. Farmers across the country have been outraged about the inaccuracies that this story presents to consumers. The worst part being making a movie about Canola and having the movie poster picture being a farmer standing in a Corn field. You already know I have some thoughts on this story.

In this episode of GTP, Dan decided to change things up a little and bring a different angle on how Canadian agriculture is perceived from an outsider’s perspective… and by an outsider, we’re not talking about someone who’s NOT from Saskatchewan. Jasmine Laverne is a young woman of color from L.A., an entrepreneur, bossbabe, and advocate for social issues.
… BUT what does Dan, a middle-aged white man from Saskatchewan, have in common with Jasmine, a young advocate for diversity, inclusion, and equity in the U.S.?!
More than you think! Listen to the episode, and you will find out.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
– Concepts like diversity, inclusion, and equity in the context of social issues.
– About the Crown Act initiative and Food Deserts… two foreign concepts for the majority of us.
