From a news release
The Ontario Superior Court has denied Grain Farmers of Ontario’s (GFO) request for a stay and interpretation on the seed treatment regulations passed into law July 1, 2015.
“We are extremely disappointed that the judge did not rule in our favour, leaving the grain industry in a very difficult situation as farmers try to arrange seed orders this fall,” says Mark Brock, chair of GFO. “We are currently reviewing our legal options and will continue to protect the rights of Ontario’s grain farmers.”
The court hearing on this application was held September 28, 2015. The judge reserved judgement until Friday afternoon (Oct. 23), at which time Grain Farmers of Ontario’s delegates were notified by Brock.
“To be very clear, Grain Farmers of Ontario has not conceded on this matter,” says Brock. “We are evaluating several options and will move forward very quickly with the strong support of our 28,000 farmer-members.”
