Canadian Corn Producers

    GUELPH, ON, June 5 /CNW/ - Canadian Corn Producers (CCP) are very
disappointed by the Federal Court of Appeal's decision today to dismiss their
application for judicial review of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal's
May 2006 no-injury finding. CCP is currently considering its options with
respect to all prongs of its attack on dumped and subsidized U.S. corn. To
this end, CCP will continue to lobby the Canadian Government to request a
dispute resolution panel in its WTO consultations regarding trade distorting
U.S. farm subsidies.

    Canadian Corn Producers (CCP) are a coalition of Canada's main corn
producer associations - namely, the Ontario Corn Producers' Association
(OCPA), the Fédération des producteurs de cultures commerciales du
Québec(FPCCQ), and the Manitoba Corn Growers' Association (MCGA). Together
they represent over 26,000 corn farmers who last crop year produced 364
million bushels of grain corn (valued at roughly $CAN 1.4 billion).
