The Manitoba Corn Growers Association continues to move forward with its appeal of a Canadian International Trade Tribunal decision.

The ruling earlier this year removed a $1.65 U.S. per bushel duty on imports of U.S. grain corn, which according to Canadian Corn Producers, are hurting domestic corn growers.

Secretary Manager Theresa Boergsma says the coalition of Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec corn growers is waiting on the Federal Court of Appeals to rule whether they will hear the case.

C.C.P. submitted its general factum late in September, and it's now before the courts.

Boergsma says it difficult to put a timeline on the appeal, as it is completely up to the discretion of the court.
