Larry Martin from the George  Morris Centre authored a recent report saying tobacco farmers were getting treated unfairly through the federal tobacco transition program. I wrote about it for the AgriSuccess Express.  Larry emailed me yesterday to say the profile the report’s received has pressured Ottawa to rethink its position. Jeff  Heldson, who does a fine job reporting about farming for the Tillsonburg News, writes about the change here.
