Saskatchewan farm leaders are disappointed with the delays in Ottawa in approving new grain movement legislation.
Canadian Federation of Agriculture vice president and APAS past president Norm Hall of Wynyard says the legislation should have been approved months ago.
“We were sort of hoping it would be passed back in February, then it was March, and then it was April, it just being pushed off, and off, some of it is just pure politics, there’s games being played,” Hall says. “In all truthfulness, we wouldn’t be in this situation if the rail roads didn’t stick us in this situation. They’ve been playing the games even harder than the politicians.”
Hall remains hopeful the grain movement legislation will be back under discussion this coming week and approved before the summer break.
