Greenhouse board regs up for amendments

The Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission has announced it is considering amendments to the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers marketing board.

In a posting on its website, the commission said “the amendments include the realignment of greenhouse vegetable growing districts, the designation of non-individual producers who are eligible to vote or hold office, and the restriction of individuals from being elected to the board who have been convicted of offences under specified legislation or have received a penalty from the local board for non-compliance with the Farm Products Marketing Act or regulations.”
The commission said the marketing board has asked it to approve the changes.
