Oct. 26, 2015, Ontario - The Ontario Superior Court has denied Grain Farmers of Ontario's 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, in a press release. "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 Sept. 28, 2015. The judge reserved judgement until Oct. 26.
