The Trudeau Liberals want to reduce emissions from fertilizer by 30% in the name of fighting climate change. But agriculture experts say that this could lead to a reduction in crop yields, which would cause a decrease in the food supply, harm farm incomes and increase the price of food.
The Liberals stress that these goals will be met through voluntary action on the part of farmers. But a new series of reports out from True North, called the Fertilizer Files, reveals how government documents show the government has been considering making it mandatory.
Anthony Furey discusses the importance of the Fertilizer Files in his latest video.
