We want to hear from you!

Today the Grain Growers of Canada (GGC) officially launches its Canada’s Trains and Moving Grains hotline, in conjunction with the new Canada’s Trains and Moving Grains podcast. These are both part of an overall, GGC produced campaign designed to delve deeper into the Canadian grain shipping and handling system, educate the ag industry about how it is set up to work, and highlight farmers’ experiences dealing with a system with limited capacity.

To participate in the hotline, text your message to 416-649-6488 or record your voice message at (toll-free) 888-870-3672
