It is with sad regret that I inform you that the Agriculture Union has lost one of our own this past weekend. Traci Gowan, President of local 80002 Halifax passed away suddenly on Saturday August 13, 2022.
Traci started his Union volunteerism with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada . He was an active member of the Nappan Local 80058, Nova Scotia, becoming secretary treasurer in 2006 and then the Local President from 2008 to 2013. With the closing of the Nappan local after the government cuts of 2012 Traci then started a new career with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and in 2016, he was elected the President of the Halifax local 80002 serving his members in that capacity up until now. Traci was always willing to fight for his members rights and represent their interests including putting his name forward for consideration for Union duties outside of the local. His leadership will be sorely missed in the local and the region. He will also be missed at the national level as he was one of Agriculture Unions senior local Presidents.
