There is a public hearing at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Appeal Tribunal where the family is fighting a $10,000 fine.
Father and son run separately-licensed dairy farms, but in close co-operation.
The milk board claims they cheated by marketing milk under one licence that was produced under the other.
This is against marketing board law? And it drew a $10,000 fine?
Leave the family alone.
The board ought to know they are struggling with some serious issues, that they share a lot of other things involved in dairy farming and the total amount of milk marketed is within the combination of their quotas.
I hope the tribunal sides with the family and instructs the marketing board to focus its attention on weightier issues.
