what's this about?
Since 1981, Ontario's grain farmers have increased our land use efficiency by 35% while reducing the amount of energy we use by 28%, saving over 170,000,000 litres of fuel each year. That’s the equivalent of taking 122,000 cars off the road. The result is more food grown on the same amount of land with a smaller environmental footprint. We’re doing our part to support a more sustainable future farming while delivering the grains our communities need to keep food affordable. But with farmers now paying more for the price of carbon than they would for the fuel needed to dry their grain, that sustainable future is at risk.
To ensure grain farmers can continue to put high quality sustainable grains on Canadian tables, we need an exemption on the carbon price for the fuel used to dry our grains until a proven fossil fuel alternative is in place and a retroactive rebate on carbon pricing paid to date to ensure we can afford to grow the grains needed next year to address global supply concerns.
