SASKATCHEWAN — The social media savvy farmer and YouTuber from Saskatchewan takes aim at the Trudeau government’s “goal” of cutting nitrogen fertilizer use by 30% in one of his latest clips.
“Are there people out there that think we’re having some kind of a crazy fertilizer giveaway program?” he rhetorically asks while behind the wheel of a tractor. Flash forward to McDick with tanks of anhydrous ammonia in the background at the farm: “Free fertilizer!” he amusingly yells. “Come get it! We’ll fill up the box of your pickup truck!”
To the contrary, reducing fertilizer use on the farm “by increasing its effectiveness has already been happening here in Canada for years and years and years,” he explains.
