Invoking her authority to change or erase some or all of a ruling by her own ministry's appeal tribunal, Ontario Ag Minister Carol Mitchell has laid out her own plan to have a dual-marketing system for hogs in the province by December.

Mitchell in March undertook a ministerial review of a February ruling by the Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Appeal Tribunal, which reinstated sections of the provincial Farm Products Marketing Regulations revoked in October 2008 by the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission (OFPMC).

The OFPMC's 2008 ruling had directed Ontario Pork to convert itself from a mandatory single-desk model to an optional marketing agency for Ontario hog farmers, and to put a plan in place by March 2009 to do so, but the commission's order was stayed by the tribunal after some farmers and other industry players appealed it.

The appeal tribunal's February decision restored Ontario Pork's single desk, but also called to exempt all Ontario hog producers from it for at least 18 months, giving the pork board time to complete its consultations and governance reviews toward a new marketing structure.
