Problems facing agriculture in Manitoba, similar to problems facing Japanese farmers.
Abstract: This is a report by the Rev. Floyd Howlett, a United Church Missionary on furlough in Canada from Japan, describing his activities and insights as he accompanied staff members of the National Farmers Union on visits to various locals in the province of Manitoba. His interest in this study project arises from his work in Japan where he is involved with farmers and farm groups with the United Church of Christ. In the report he describes the "Three Love Movement", a Japanese farm group whose aim is to help farmers examine some of the problems facing agriculture in Japan and draws some parallels between their struggle and those problems facing the farmers in Canada; namely the determination of agricultural policy by its affect on the industrial sector, and the threat by powerful Multinationals to take over the present grain handling systems.
Mr. Howlett gives a critique of the issues and outlines ways in which farmers might work together to counter these forces.
