On Twitter, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said the province would not go forward with Trudeau’s fertilizer reduction scheme.

“Our response to the federal government’s 30% reduction on fertilizer usage is “thanks, but no thanks.” for Saskatchewan,” Premier Scott Moe wrote in a tweet.

As previously reported by The Counter Signal, in December 2020, the Trudeau government unveiled their new climate plan, with a focus on reducing nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizer by 30% below 2020 levels by 2030. That plan is now coming into effect — though the government refuses to acknowledge that nitrous oxide emissions can be reduced without drastically reducing fertilizer use and thus crop production.

In late July, Moe had more choice words for Trudeau’s plan.

“The same federal government who alienated our oil and gas industry is now putting global food security at risk by attacking the hard-working agriculture producers across western Canada with an arbitrary goal to reduce fertilizer usage,” said Moe.

“Saskatchewan producers use some of the most sustainable agriculture practices anywhere in the world, and we need to be sharing that story instead of targeting producers’ ability to put food on the table for families at home and abroad.”

The decision of Saskatchewan to reject the prospective fertilizer reduction policy will certainly strike a blow to Trudeau’s overall plan, as Saskatchewan is one of if not the biggest crop producers in the country, growing most of Canada’s durum wheat, canola, and lentils.
