Prairie Oat Growers Association (POGA) President Art Enns presented to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture regarding Bill C-30 (the Fair Rail for Grain Farmers Act) on April 1, 2014. The transportation crisis has affected many shippers so Bill C-30 is an important interim step but must be part of long term measures that address the needs of all shippers. POGA and the Grain Growers of Canada join with many other organizations in recommending a series of amendments to Bill C-30 and specific elements to be included in the subsequent regulatory package, including the needs to get oats moving to US markets.
President Enns also addressed the Senate Agriculture Commitee on May 14, 2014.
