Stewart Slater

Stew operates a fifth-generation family farm near Uniondale, producing certified organic milk.  For 40 years he has also dabbled in community journalism and agricultural journalism, with his current off-farm activities mainly with the Farmtario farm newspaper. In 2003, he was approached by the Quadro Board of Directors to write a history book about the cooperative and its predecessor company, Blanshard Municipal Telephone System.  The outcomes of that project included the book “80 Years of Telephone History”, as well as an enduring awareness of the potential for state-of-the-art telecommunications to enrich the lives of small-town and rural Ontarians.  He was first elected to the Quadro Board of Directors in 2018.
