De moins en moins de fermes au pays


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.

Pontiac resident Garry Bélair has sent out a desperate call for help.

Garry, a schoolbus driver, is unable to work due to a serious eye disease.

The care that Mr. Bélair requires to treat his condition costs hundreds of dollars each month.

But Garry currently has no income and is not eligable for social assistance.

He hopes to get a loan from the State that he promises to repay upon his return to work.
