Federal Court hearing scheduled regarding P.E.I. potato seeds

A judicial review is scheduled to be heard this week in Federal Court in Charlottetown regarding an application by the P.E.I. Potato Board challenging the federal government's decisions involving the restriction of potato seed exports due to the presence of warts. It seems that the potato board filed the application on June 24, 2022, against the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the minister of agriculture and agri-food.

The application is asking the court to set aside ongoing government decisions since Nov. 21, 2021, that prohibited seed potato movement within Canadian and US markets due to potato wart. Of note, the board says an issue is with a ministerial order that declared the "entire province infested with potato wart."
