David Allan) Ling’s leadership and advocacy for primary producers lay the groundwork for generations of Canadian farmers, and established cooperation between provinces and associations that continues to improve the industry.

Allan joined the National Farmers Union in 1970, where for more than two decades he advocated on behalf of his fellow producers. He represented the needs of Maritime Farmers and ensured their voice was heard at the national level.
