What We Stand For
Today, the Wheat Growers’ position on policies are:
- We believe a federal carbon tax will hurt farmers and that the coalition opposing the federal carbon tax is the right and necessary step.
- We want investments in Canada so the latest ag seed technology can help farmers compete in an increasingly competitive global market.
- We support a full review of the Grain Act and Grain Commission, from how it’s structured, to the services it offers, and how they’re provided. We are adamant that the current surplus be returned to farmers via reduced fees, and the surplus should not be used for anything else until a full review is complete.
