Bill C-234 is at its final stage of the legislation process in the Senate and only one step away from becoming law. The Agriculture Carbon Alliance (ACA) is calling on supporters to reiterate the importance and timeliness of Bill C-234 to farmers and our food security by urging Senators to stop the delay and pass it into law immediately. The last amendment to the Bill was successfully defeated.
An amendment removing provisions for heating and cooling buildings and greenhouses was recently adopted by the Senate Agriculture and Forestry Committee (AGFO), unfairly excluding tens of thousands of farmers, ranchers, and growers from vital financial relief. The ACA is also concerned that further delays arising from the proposed amendment to the bill will indefinitely postpone getting essential capital back into the hands of Canada's producers.
UFA is encouraging our members to get involved and here's how you can help:
Join the letter-writing campaign to Senators, urging them to reject the amendment and swiftly pass Bill C-234 in its original form. The ACA has prepared the letter; all you need to do is add your name. Your support is vital in ensuring that Canadian farmers receive the crucial backing they deserve.
