CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/01/14 -- Alberta Barley is pleased with the accountable and enforceable Bill C-30 regulations announced by the federal government today.
"These regulations are farmer-focused and put us on a level-playing field," said Alberta Barley Chairman Matt Sawyer. "This is a positive step towards accountability throughout the entire rail transportation system."
The regulations announced by Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz are important because they reinforce Canada's railways' accountability to farmers. This accountability includes ensuring that railways meet minimum grain shipping requirements during harvest, and providing compensation to farmers when expenses are incurred because of the railways not fulfilling their obligations.
The regulations also protect farmers' rights in dealings with grain companies by making delivery contracts more accountable.
"All parties in our rail transportation system now have some rules to live by," added Sawyer. "Alberta's barley farmers will continue to do our part by growing the grain to meet the needs of our domestic and international markets."
Alberta Barley continues to advocate for the increased rail capacity required to effectively move grain, and looks forward to participating in the ongoing Canada Transportation Act review.
Approximately nine out of every 10 farms in this country are dependent on exports, making transportation a priority for the Canadian economy.
