Farmers concerns

Another damn survey. We are all used to getting phone surveys on everything from your time watching TV, to what kinds of corn did you order for spring, to which chemicals do you use on your crops?
When we get surveyed, we always wonder what are the real reasons for these questions? When I received a phone call that left a call back number, I realized that maybe this was worth a call back. When I called back the next day and a Canadian answered and asked “if I would agree to a survey about some Canadian farmer’s major concerns?”
I agreed although still a little skeptical. When a few minutes later, I received an email from that person with all the questions that would be asked in the interview, I realized after reading the questions that this was no normal interview. The answers would be included with answers given from other phone surveys and when compiled, the answers would be used to influence future Federal government policies.
