Canada - Ontario orders "negative option" for hog marketing

The order ending Ontario Pork's days as a mandatory single-desk hog marketing agency has been overturned -- that is, if the province's hog producers want it to be. A ruling Tuesday from the province's Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Appeal Tribunal reinstates sections of the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Regulations that were revoked in October 2008 by the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission.

The order ending Ontario Pork's days as a mandatory single-desk hog marketing agency has been overturned -- that is, if the province's hog producers want it to be.

A ruling Tuesday from the province's Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Appeal Tribunal reinstates sections of the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Regulations that were revoked in October 2008 by the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission.

The tribunal's decision Tuesday restores the single desk, but exempts all Ontario hog producers from it for a minimum of 18 months. Those who want to market through the single desk will then have to apply to waive the exemption.
