Lyle Vanclief

Lyle Vanclief, PC , B.Sc.Ag., P.Ag.(Dist.) (born September 19 1943) was Canada's Minister of Agriculture from 1997-2003.

Born in Ameliasburg, Ontario, he was first elected to the Canadian House of Commons as a Liberal Member of Parliament representing the rural Ontario riding of Prince Edward—Hastings in 1988. He was considered a strong supporter of Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, and was removed from the Canadian Cabinet when Paul Martin succeeded Chrétien as Liberal leader and prime minister in 2003.

He did not run for re-election in the 2004 election, and today works as a lobbyist.

He supported Stéphane Dion for the leadership of the Liberal Party. [ [ Liberal Party of Canada ] ]
