“Canada’s pulse industry applauds the introduction of Bill C-359, An Act to amend the Feeds Act, the Seeds Act and the Pest Control Products Act (provisional registration and approval).
“Bill C-359 will put much-needed and trusted technologies in the hands of Canadian farmers faster, enabling them to remain competitive in the global environment.
“With the right measures in place, Canadian pulse growers can continue to drive our economy. We encourage Parliamentarians to support this bill at all stages of the legislative process.”
