Message from Ralph Dietrich

July 10, 2018

Yesterday we learned of the tragic accident involving Henk and Bettina Schuurmans, two Ontario dairy producers, who set out in late June from their Elmira, Ont., area dairy farm to drive across Canada. Henk and Bettina were passionate about Canadian dairy and their goal was to promote the Canadian dairy system and supply management, and what it means for the families that produce Canada's milk.

On behalf of the board of Dairy Farmers of Ontario, we want to express our most sincere sympathies to the family at this most sad time. There has been naturally an outpouring of grief and support across Canada. We await the opportunity to discuss with the family how DFO can best support them in their time of loss.

In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are with them.
