Dutch farmer protests and what's happening in Canada, explained

The ongoing protests in the Netherlands, by farmers opposed to their government’s plan to slash nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 per cent by 2030, have drawn attention to Canadian farmers’ concerns over an emissions reduction target set by the Canadian government. But the policies set out by the Dutch government and the Canadian government are fundamentally different, experts say.

Hundreds gathered for a slow roll protest from Moose Jaw to Regina. Demonstrators explained that the action was being in solidarity with Dutch farmers protesting agricutlural policies. (David Prisciak/CTV News)
