Agricultural interests in eastern Canada, and particularly those in Quebec, are concerned about changes in the method of payment of the Crow Benefit subsidy in the Prairies. A change from paying the railways to some form of producer payment would transform a transportation subsidy for grain into a general production subsidy in the Prairies for all commodities, including livestock.
