Letter of Support for Bill C-234

October 11, 2023 | Documents

NCFA, along with the Canadian Cattle Association, submitted a letter to the Standing Senate Committee on Agriculture and Forestry in support of the expeditious passage of Bill C-234, as written, to third reading at the Senate.

Bill C-234 seeks to amend the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act to extend the exemption for qualifying farming fuel to marketable natural gas and propane. This Bill addresses what we consider to be a fundamental oversight within the Act, which presently only provides an exemption to on-farm utilization of gasoline and diesel. While these fuels are indispensable for farm operations, natural gas and propane is equally imperative and should have been included from the outset.
