Rural Canada, goats, and Talking to Americans: Rick Mercer

(Jessika Guse/RealAgriculture)

It’s the 20th anniversary of the FarmTech conference, and the group brought in a Canadian legend as the banquet’s keynote speaker.

Some might know him from his days at This Hour has 22 Minutes, but most if not all, know him for the Rick Mercer Report. RealAg Radio host Shaun Haney was lucky enough to sit down with Mercer an interview Wednesday afternoon.

The pair discuss everything from traveling across Canada and the various places — both small and large — Mercer was able to visit, to the best and funniest politicians to speak with, and even how he convinced Americans that Canadians were celebrating the 24-hour clock.

Listen below to RealAg Radio host, Shaun Haney speak with Rick Mercer at FarmTech 2019.
