BRUCE CUM­MINGS

More of Our Canada - - Content -

Born in the Ot­tawa area, Bruce and his wife still make their home there. In­flu­enced by fam­ily mem­bers who farmed, he has al­ways been in­ter­ested in agri­cul­ture. He spent his adult life em­ployed with the Canada Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture, work­ing with cy­to­ge­net­ics of ce­real grains. Re­tired now, he still keeps up his in­ter­est in farm­ing in the area. Bruce says de­spite the fact that you can’t “stop progress,” it sad­dens him to see many ex­cel­lent farms on some of the best agri­cul­tural land in the area be­ing taken over by new de­vel­op­ments.
