Hugh Horner was a key force behind the growth and development of Alberta's agriculture industry. Under his direction as minister from 1971 to 1975, the Alberta department of agriculture was revitalized with many new programs to support the agriculture industry. After serving as Minister of Transportation and Minister of Economic Development, Dr. Horner became federal Grain Transportation Coordinator. It was his inspiration that initiated the establishment of the Prince Rupert grain terminal and the organization of the necessary consortium for its construction in 1980. In 1983, he became chairman of Alberta Terminals Ltd. and Alberta director of Prince Rupert Grain.
