Over the years, Lloyd has been such a strong champion for Guelph, for new innovative businesses and for the agriculture and agri-food industries. Lloyd has understood the importance of innovation to Canadian industries and been out front leading the efforts in his ongoing support for the critical importance of innovation to Ontario's and Canada's future economy . The yardsticks have moved forward at least partly because of Lloyd's leadership. We are very lucky indeed to have Lloyd representing our interests in Ottawa and the interests of all Canadians."
