(Photo: Mark Taylor/The Canadian Press)Producer Todd Lewis, who showed Trudeau around his family's century-old farm, says carbon pricing has hurt agriculture in other parts of the country. Lewis says farmers know that if they burn fuel, they burn money, so they're always looking for ways to be more efficient and innovative. He says low-carbon agriculture was born in Saskatchewan and farmers deserve recognition for the work they've done. But Lewis says he hosted the prime minister because it's important to have the conversation, or as he puts it, "if you're not at the dinner table, you're probably on the menu, and today we're at the dinner table."
