I'm a former commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission so I'm somewhat familiar with producer cars. Producer cars are actually a right that is enshrined in the Canada Grain Act and have existed since 1918, I think. Don't quote me on that date. The right for producers to load their own hopper cars and ship their own hopper cars has existed in Canada for a long time and still continues to exist.
The use of producer cars goes up and down over time. It depends on market conditions, and it depends on the year, but they are still utilized, and they are still an emergency valve, as it were, for producers and are not impacted by Bill C-49 at all.
