Grain Farmers of Ontario Calls on Senators to Ensure Timely Passage of Bill C-234

Guelph, Ontario – October 18, 2023 – Grain Farmers of Ontario, the province’s largest commodity organization, representing Ontario’s 28,000 barley, corn, oat, soybean, and wheat farmers, calls on the members of the Senate Agriculture & Forestry Committee to wrap up their review of Bill C-234 – which would remove the carbon tax on fuels used on farm for grain drying – and clear the way for the Senate to pass the bill as soon as possible.

The Senate committee meets tomorrow morning to conduct its clause-by-clause review of the bill, usually the last stage of the committee’s review before the bill is reported back to the Senate for its final vote.

“With grain farmers from across Ontario now busy harvesting their crops and grain drying on the immediate horizon, they are counting on Bill C-234 becoming law as soon as possible to provide financial relief this growing season,” said Brendan Byrne, chair, Grain Farmers of Ontario.
