Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  Mr. Hoback, thanks for the question. Being a farmer rep, it's hard to know, but I could certainly commit to getting back to you and the clerk in writing after speaking with COPA, which represents the processors. I know they're very bullish on this as far as that $1-billion inves

Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  That's a great question. On an annual basis, approximately 20 million tonnes of canola are produced. About 10 million tonnes of that is now value added. It's crushed at a processing facility instead of being sold as the raw product, as seed. Quite frankly, our two biggest exp

Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  Absolutely. We've had 10 years of reciprocal aggregate compliance between the United States EPA and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada that recognizes both of our markets' production practices as sustainable. Unfettered access across the 49th parallel is critical for canola—Canada

Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  Thank you for the invitation to appear before this special committee. As mentioned, my name is Dave Carey. I'm the Canadian Canola Growers Association's vice-president of government and industry relations, based here in Ottawa. I am joined by my colleague Janelle Whitley in Winn

Dave Carey

Agriculture committee  Yes, we always keep in close contact with the U.S. associations. When it comes to canola, we're a bit different, because we control 60% of the world's global trade. Our biggest competitor, when it comes to canola, is actually Australia, which did repeal its carbon tax a number of

Agriculture committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. The number would be based on 2018 usage rates and prices. That is the analysis we did internally. We are now in the final stages of getting third party analysis done by the accounting firm MNP, which will be canola-specific using verified third party metho

Industry committee  I think PMRA is a world-class institution. Besides Canada, the U.S. and Australia, there are very few pest management agencies that really uphold the high-level science, using risk as opposed to hazard. The concern we have is that in the absence of data, as PMRA doesn't currentl

Industry committee  Canola and agriculture have a really positive story to tell when it comes to environmental policy and the intersection of agricultural and environmental policy. It's really important, going forward, that there be an understanding, when environmental policy is being crafted, of ho

Industry committee  Thank you. Thank you for the invitation to appear before this committee today on this important study. My organization, the Canadian Canola Growers Association, represents 43,000 canola farmers from Ontario to British Columbia on national and international issues, policies and

Dave Carey

Agriculture committee  Thanks. I did have the chance to watch Mr. Brock's testimony. I think what we're asking for is a technical working group laser-focused on AgriStability. As opposed to looking at everything broadly, let's have a group that can really dive into how AgriStability is or is not work

Dave Carey

Agriculture committee  I would just add that it's an opportunity to make sure that we're not having this conversation again and to make sure that the suite of programs works for farmers and for producers. We need an open and collaborative manner, one where we can feed our input into it and have a dialo

Agriculture committee  We are one of 36 administrators of the federal government's advance payments program. CCGA is by far the largest, doing over 60% of the dollar value. There have been delays. We weren't prepared for the new creditworthiness measures that Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada put in p

Dave Carey

Agriculture committee  Thanks for your comment. We estimate that it would be about 1.3 million tonnes, which would be evaluated at over $1 billion, should the clean fuel standard be moved to 5% for biodiesel and for which canola is arguably the best feedstock. It burns approximately 90% cleaner than

Dave Carey

Agriculture committee  Thank you for the question. We have certainly seen China take a strong approach to trade, and doing what it feels is in its best interests of late. I know that in March there was ongoing dialogue between the Canadian government and the Chinese government. The recent court decisi
