A word from Dr.Larry Martin...
Ontario's Farm Products Marketing Commission published an unexpected intention to markedly weaken regulation marketing in the processing vegetable industry. In my opinion, it was done poorly in terms of both the evidence analysis used to make the decision. It represented a rather unprecedented approach to policy making that could have far reaching consequences for unsupportable decisions in other industries or jurisdictions. I have worked with the processing vegetable industry for well over two decades. In light of the quality of analysis provided by theCommission, I felt the need to explain my observations about the industry's performance in the recent past, as well as provide some observations on what analysis is needed.
