It is one of the most beautiful parts of Canadian farm country. I am talking about the Beauce region of Quebec, that area south of Quebec city, where picturesque churches dot the landscape and dairy and hog farms dot the landscape. To the south is Boston Massachusetts, a major market for many Quebec agricultural products. However, on July 24 there will protest in Beauce as Quebec dairy farmers protest a possible move to weaken or end supply management. Hell has no fury as a Quebec farmer wronged. The federal government may surely find out.

I'm very interested in this protest ...
