Canola Council of Canada President Jim Everson is not expecting canola acreage to be terribly affected in 2019, despite the trade situation with China.

"I've heard different things from the different farmers we've spoken to," he said. "I think there will be probably some reconsideration of seeded acreage as a result of the uncertainty around China, but on the other hand I've certainly heard from many who say, no, they're committed to the crop profile that they have currently and they're looking to see us resolve this issue and get back to the Chinese market."

A pair of parliamentary committees met this week to discuss the situation with China and how producers have been affected.
