Allan Macpherson has been a steadfast promoter of the welfare of Alberta farmers. In particular, he has been known for his strong support of principles and policies which benefitted farmers during his 32-year tenure with the Alberta Wheat Pool. As president of the Pool, he was instrumental in identifying and developing high quality grain handling facilities used to move Alberta grain, and in upgrading the Alberta Wheat Pool Terminal at Vancouver. He was responsible for coordinating a group which helped establish the Prince Rupert Grain Terminal and was a major force behind the establishment of the Grain Academy in 1981. In 1978, Mr. Macpherson attended the International Wheat Agreement meeting as an advisor to the Canadian government.
