De moins en moins de fermes au pays

Categories: 

Alors que le nombre de fermes diminue au Canada, leur taille augmente et leurs exploitants se font de plus en plus âgés, révèle un rapport rendu public mardi par Statistique Canada.

L'agence, qui se fonde sur les données du Recensement de l'agriculture de 2011, a répertorié 205 730 fermes en 2011 au pays, ce qui représente un déclin de 74 000 exploitations agricoles en vingt ans.

Pendant ce temps, depuis 1991, la superficie agricole moyenne a augmenté pour passer de 198 à 778 acres

Un des auteurs du rapport et analyste en agriculture, Martin Beaulieu, a expliqué qu'une des raisons de cet accroissement de la taille des fermes est la mise en commun des terres à mesure que les agriculteurs prennent leur retraite.

Says she’s faced death threats since Tricia Boisvert’s homicide in Montreal

By Meghan Hurley, OTTAWA CITIZEN February 6, 2014
OTTAWA — The mother of a Gatineau drug dealer accused of killing 36-year-old Tricia Boisvert in her Montreal apartment has one message for her son: Come home.

Police have accused Philippe Steele-Morin, 30, of killing Boisvert in her Montreal apartment on Jan 17. Her body was found a week later in a wooded area near Quyon, Que.

“I just want it all over. I just want it to end,” the suspect’s mother, Rita Steele, told the Citizen. “It’s not fair to his kids. It’s definitely not fair to me.”

Steele said she knew something was wrong when Gatineau police called her the Saturday after Boisvert disappeared to ask where her son was.

A few days later, Steele found out that Montreal police had named her son as the main suspect in Boisvert’s death. Police have said they believe Steele-Morin was the last person to see Boisvert alive.

“Something went wrong because Philip is not a killer. It doesn’t make sense to me,” Steele said. “I just wish he would come out, because then we would have answers.”
