“In speaking with
Canadian farmers across the country, I have learned a tremendous amount about
the diverse issues that farmers face in Canada and I look forward to continuing
to work with industry in my new role,” said Pellerin.

“Laurent has been a
committed contributor to CFA and provided great leadership to this
organization,” said Ron Bonnett, 1st vice president.

“He will certainly be
missed, but we wish him all the best in his future pursuits,” said Garnet
Etsell, 2nd vice president.

The leadership duties of
the CFA will be shared in the interim by Ron Bonnett and Garnet Etsell until
elections for all three executive officer positions are held at the CFA annual
general meeting in February 2011.
