Henk and Bettina Shuurmans have crossed the district, as they make the trek from southern Ontario toVancouver, in support of dairy farmers. They're driving on their John Deere tractor, along with Maple the cow, to talk about family farms and quality milk.
Their supply management marketing boards have been the focus of trade talks between Canada and the United States. The Schuurmans figure it'll take about a month to reach the West Coast.
They passed through Kenora yesterday, as they head across Manitoba.
