Shaping Agriculture Policy — How a Bill Becomes Law

November 15, 2014

Believe it or not, there are several opportunities, over many months, to shape a bill that’s presented in parliament. While, yes, hours of work are put into to drafting a bill that may become law, the parliamentary process allows for interested individuals or groups to have their say on what they want to see changed or want to make sure stays in the bill.

Real Agriculture’s editor, Lyndsey Smith, sat down with Jan Dyer, director of government relations, with the Canadian Canola Growers Association, so she could explain the process of how a bill becomes law. This matters in many ways and for all farmers, as for many, the process is a bit of a mystery. What’s more, instead of feeling that you must simply wait to find out what rules and regulations you must adhere to, Dyer outlines how farmers can have a very real impact on the shaping of public policy.
