Carbon Tax, Cost Of Grain Drying Discussed This Week In Ottawa

The country's agriculture ministers met this week in Ottawa.
Blaine Pedersen is Manitoba's Minister of Agriculture and Resource Development.
"When we were having our discussions with the federal minister, we certainly reiterated the cost of the carbon tax on propane and natural gas use for drying the crops," he said. "There's a lot of drying that happened this fall. She has asked us to put together some numbers in Manitoba's case, what the extra cost will be and so we'll be reaching out to the farm community to pull together some of the numbers, because I know they are substantial."
Other topics of discussion at the meeting included Business Risk Management, African swine fever, and trade issues.
