Robert Sopuck has extensive experience in the environmental field as a consultant and fisheries biologist. He has served on the National Round table for the Environment and Economy; and was a natural resources advisor to the Filmon government.  Sopuck graduated with a Masters from Cornell University in Ithaca New York and received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Manitoba.  Sopuck has also farmed and worked in both the forestry and oil and gas sectors.

“It will be a pleasure to bring my past experiences working in government and as a natural resources advisor to the committee on behalf of rural Canadians and landowners who are often the most effected by government environmental policies,” said Sopuck.
