Farm groups urge producers to call on Senators to pass Bill C-234

Farm groups across the country are calling on the Senate to finally push Bill C-234 through.

The bill calls for the exemption of the carbon tax on natural gas and propane for farm use including grain drying, heating and cooling barns and greenhouses.

Earlier this month, just as the Bill was in its third reading there was a call to adjourn debate which was granted by the Senate speaker.

With the Senate returning this week,  farmers and ranchers are getting emails encouraging them to reach out to Senators calling on them to pass the bill into law.

The Agriculture Carbon Alliance and many other farm groups created a letter for producers to sign on their websites and submit via email to Senators.

The Senate calendar shows the Agriculture Committee Meeting is set to convene again on Thursday.
