The Western Canadian Wheat Growers is calling for an immediate reduction in Grain Commission user fees paid by farmers.
The Wheat Growers association is also calling for a farmer refund of tens of millions of dollars in overcharges.
Wheat Growers president Levi Wood says the federal Grain Commission, which charges for grain inspection and weighing, has piled up a 100 million dollar surplus.
He says grain volumes have been higher in the past few years than first estimated, so the volume of fees has been much higher.
An average farmer who delivers 55 hundred tons of grain to an elevator in the past year would have paid about ten thousand dollars in user fees.
He says its time to reduce fees and refund the surplus.
The Wheat Growers has also launched a petition on the issue, asking all western grain farmers to join in the request for a drop in fees and a refund.
