Widely recognized and respected in the Western Canadian agricultural community, Gary Anderson, a Bethune Saskatchewan area farmer and community leader, is the Liberal candidate for Regina-Lumsden-Lake Centre.
Mr. Anderson and his wife Karen, along with their son Geoff and daughters Ginny, Becky and Bobbi, continue to operate the farm homesteaded by his grandfather a century ago. Anderson Limousin Farms includes 5,000 acres of cropland and one of North America’s most respected purebred Limousin herds. In January 2003, Mr. Anderson was named the “Record Stockman Canadian Livestock Man of the Year” for his outstanding contribution to the livestock industry.
Mr. Anderson had the privilege to work with the Prime Minister in a January meeting at which input and ideas for a strengthened western economy were sought. That meeting solidified his desire to join Paul Martin’s team in Ottawa.
He has provided more than 20 years of volunteer commitment and leadership to both the city of Regina and the agricultural industry. He is currently an executive member of Canadian Western Agribition and director of the Regina Exhibition Association.
He also serves as chairman of the International Trade and Export Centre, a joint effort between Regina Economic Development Authority, Regina Exhibition Association and Canadian Western Agribition. In addition, he is a director for the Saskatchewan Livestock Association and the Canadian Limousin Association, and in past years has been active as a community representative for both Hockey Regina and Regina minor baseball.
