A panel of judges has reserved their decision on the Grain Farmers of Ontarioâ€™s request for appeal on the dismissal of the case surrounding the Ontario governmentâ€™s seed treatment regulations.
â€œWe appreciate that the court is taking the time to consider the significance of this issue,â€ says Mark Brock, Chair of Grain Farmers of Ontario. â€œWe are pleased with todayâ€™s outcome and look forward to the decision.â€
The case was heard by a panel of judges, comprised of Justice Laskin, Justice Cronk, and Justice Miller.
Two hundred grain farmers filled the courthouse today, showing support for the case and concern over the outcome. Farmers arrived from across Ontario on five buses, as well as by car and train.
â€œWe would like to sincerely thank our farmer-members for their demonstration of support â€” we are all well aware of the serious impact of these regulations,â€ says Brock. â€œWe will share further details, as soon as they become available, with our membership.â€
