Municipality to overcome cynicism in politics – with Martin St-Gelais

La municipalité pour vaincre le cynisme en politique – avec Martin St-Gelais

When we talk about government assistance in agriculture, the provincial and federal levels always come to mind.

But we often forget that municipal leaders can offer more direct, faster and even more significant assistance at certain levels to farmers.

In this episode, Mike and Jean-William welcome the friendly Martin St-Gelais, general manager of the municipality of Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Montérégie.

They of course discuss the ways in which municipalities can help agricultural businesses, and how these are often key to the prosperity of rural communities.

Our hosts even come out a little less cynical about the role that politics can play in agriculture!
