Christmas Seems to Be Coming Early for Western Grain Farmers

An early Christmas present for farmers? Western Canadian wheat and barley producers are one step closer to being able to market their own grain. Bill C-18 passed third and final reading in the House of Commons yesterday.  It will change the lives of 70,000 grain farmers forever  For the good by the way!

It now is in the hands of the Senate who hopefully will pass this legislation before Christmas.

Farmers are so happy and overwhelmed, a farmer from Red Deer teared up yesterday after the vote.
