In Europe and Quebec, farmers took to the streets recently to protest their harsh working conditions. According to a farmer from Bouctouche, the situation is hardly more enviable in New Brunswick.

Labor shortage, inflation, labor costs production which continues to climb, climate change: in the province, many farmers are struggling to rise above the poverty line.

The co-owner of the Michaud farm in Bouctouche, Christian Michaud, emphasizes that the challenges facing farmers here are the same as those of the Quebec agricultural industry .

I would dare to say that the only thing in New Brunswick [is] that we have less financial assistance than them. Our challenges are perhaps even a little greater, he says.

Former vice-president of the New Brunswick Agricultural Alliance, Christian Michaud is well aware of the extent of the problem in the province.
