David Schmidt, Country Life in BC, was this year’s recipient of the Canadian Farm Writers Federation Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is presented to David for his outstanding commitment to the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation and to the agricultural communications or media industries. Presenting the award to David is Tamara Leigh.
David made a point of saying that he doesn’t use one of those new smart phone gizmos but cautioned the attendees about thinking that “old guys” like him are completely clueless when it comes to the web. The reason is because through Google he discovered that people were sending in letters of recommendation for him for this award. He wasn’t supposed to know that!
