“The name of any recipient of a federal or provincial subsidy, grant, or benefit should be publicly disclosed as a basic matter of transparency for taxpayers,” the Liberal MP for the Toronto riding of Beaches-East York, Nathaniel Erskine-Smith , and who is tied to animal rights organizations asserted. “More, it would be good to see a breakdown of how agricultural subsidies/benefits are allocated, and whether that allocation is consistent with our food, health, and climate policies.” He was recently part of an online forum that included discussion about a “Defund Animal Agriculture” campaign.

This is only in Ontario but this is scary and this trend will continue if not pushed back against Reply With Quote

I would challenge the MP to release the names of every individual who received CERB and EI and social assistance payments this year by his comments about transparency for government subsidies Reply With Quote

    I kinda can't wait to hear all the complaining by all those that applied for the 40,000 loan and won't qualify. Thanks to Kevin Hursh and western producer and the quote "don't miss out on your share.

    those in the last 13 years flood zone won't agree but I really don't see where a grain farm has been hurt so far from covid.

    Maybe I will be wrong and will have missed out but to me this loan was not created for grain farmers. Reply With Quote

    In addition to the long-standing Farming and Food Production Protection Act, Ontario recently passed the Security from Trespass and Animal Safety Act in June.

    My guess is that this FOI request is a counter-measure schemed up by the anti-food, anti-farming activists.

    So the government passes protective legislation and then immediately turns around and declares open season on farmers.

    Every Ontario farmer is required to apply for a farm business registration (FBR) number in order to qualify for the farming, land-tax rate, a rate set lower than residential property. We may request our application fee to be refunded.

    So the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, in their immeasurable wisdom, decided to release the farmers registered names, but not the FBR.

    I. Do. Not. Understand.

    It appears to me that the anti-farming psychos have infiltrated every level of government and echelon of society. Reply With Quote
