Your Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association We are a farm advocacy organization dedicated to developing ag policy solutions that strengthen the profitability and sustainability of farming and the agricultural industry. As a not-for-profit association, each member of your Board of Directors is a committed and passionate wheat farmer, giving their time and energy to advocate on behalf of you and your business. 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. Shaping the Direction of Ag Policy, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow Advocating Through Thick and Thin for the Last 50 Years. We Are Farmers. We Know Agriculture. We Know What Works Best for Farmers Because We Are Farmers. We Provide an Optimistic and Educated Perspective.
