Phil Thomas is not only the original “Mr. Canola,” he is a combination of educator, extension worker, radio commentator, supervisor, author, researcher, consultant, advisor, and life-long learner. A prolific author, his works include the Canola Growers Manual and the landmark Alberta Rapeseed Home Study Course. As a guest lecturer, seminar leader, and guest speaker, Phil Thomas has shared his knowledge and expertise about Canada’s canola/rapeseed to audiences in Canada and around the world. He has also made a tremendous impact through his service on numerous local, national and international committees. He is an enthusiastic ambassador, patient teacher and renowned for his knowledge. When the fields of summer are painted the colour of canola, one cannot help but be reminded of Phil’s invaluable career and the tremendous contribution his work has made towards Alberta’s success.
