SARM annual meeting opens Monday in Regina

Grain movement backlog and the carbon tax will be among the issues raised at the SARM annual meeting, which opens Monday in Regina.

SARM president Ray Orb remains hopeful the federal government will provide some form of support for farmers who faced a tough harvest and a costly carbon tax on fuel used for drying grain.

“We’re going to talk about the amount of crops that are still out, and the issue of the carbon tax on grain drying, we’re still trying to rectify that with the federal government.”

 More than 2,000 rural municipal delegates will attend the annual SARM convention, which runs Monday through Thursday in Regina.
