Submission by the National Farmers Union to the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) on the potential liability of farmers due to changes to the Canada Grain Act and the Canadian Grain Commission

In December, 2007, Bill C-39, An Act to Amend the Canada Grain Act, was introduced into the House of Commons. That piece of legislation died on the order paper in the fall of 2008 due to a federal election.

This impending legislation, combined with the regulatory changes which have occurred over the past year, pose a profound risk to Manitoba grain producers, and by extension, to the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation.
