Dauphin, Canada

Parkland producers are waiting on legislation to pass in the Canadian Senate that will help get their crops to market.

Farmers have been dealing with rail delays and cancellations for many years, causing financial problems.

Dan Mazier, President of the Keystone Ag Producers, says it’s important that producers talk to their local representatives.

“I would watch.  I would talk with your MP.  But, even if you know a senator, talk to your MP, and your Senator.  It’s going through the Senate right now.  Be aware of it; go on the internet; there are presentations happening right now.  Talk with your local KAP representative.”

Mazier is heading to Ottawa next week to present in front of the committee responsible for Bill C-49, otherwise known as the Transportation Modernization Act.
