Fertilizer Reduction Policies will Increase Food Prices
Canadian farmers lead the world on environmental stewardship, but the Liberals are insulting Canadian farmers and creating instability in our critical food supply by setting arbitrary fertilizer emissions reduction targets with limited consultations with farmers and industry stakeholders.
The price of inputs for agricultural production have been increasing. The cost of fertilizer, fuel, drying grain and heating barns is rising due to Liberal carbon taxes making this year’s crop one of the most expensive in Canadian history.
It is leading to higher costs in the grocery aisles for families already struggling to put food on the table. Food prices have increased 10% since June as a result of record inflation caused by bad Liberal policy and spending.
The Liberals must stop punishing farmers and immediately and cancel their ridiculous fertilizer reduction target
