Real Ag Radio: Canadian Senate to vote on C-234 amendments that would lower carbon tax burden on farmers
Shaun Haney, host of Rural Radio Channel 147’s Real Ag Radio, joined us Friday on Market Day Report with an update on the important vote involving the use of ag machinery in Canada.
All eyes are on the Canadian Senate as farm groups wait for a vote on the C-234 Amendments. This vote to amend Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act would extend the fuel exemptions to include natural gas and propane, as well as expand they types of eligible farming machinery in order to include grain dryers, and barn heating and cooling systems.
In his conversation with RFD-TV’s own Christina Loren, Haney explained when we can expect a vote, how the Prime Minister’s decision last week gave the ag industry leverage in the vote, as well as another ag-related issue under consideration by Canadian officials that will be of keen interest to the American dairy industry.
