The stark consequences of this scenario are that Canadian egg and chicken producers will not only experience chronically lower prices, but those prices will likely fluctuate more widely in concert with the cyclical swings of world prices.

Government and industry leaders have critical decisions to make regarding the future purpose and functioning of the systems on matters such as production, allocation and pricing -- all vital to maintaining viable Canadian industries.
