Phoenix tangles with egg board

Daryl Phoenix has filed an appeal against the Egg Farmers of Ontario marketing board, challenging its jurisdiction.

Phoenix, whose farm is at Sunderland, has tangled with the egg board in the past, such as questioning its rental of production increases granted Ontario by the national agency.

The hearing is scheduled for Dec.10 at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food’s Appeals Tribunal hearing room at 1 Stone Road, Guelph.

Phoenix withdrew his appeal a week before the hearing.
