Weasel Words From Agriculture Minister
In the letter, Mr. Strahl says, "Western grain farmers have told us that they wanted new opportunities. So we delivered." What western grain farmers is he referring to? Are these the ones WHO DO NOT have a vote in how the CWB will operate as the current Act states? Are these the same thousands and thousands of wheat producers who have been taken OFF the voters list?
Strahl plays more word games when he states, "Additionally, farmers have asked for consultation when it comes to the future of the CWB, so that is exactly what we are doing. We will be having a plebiscite on barley in the new year. I will be developing a plebiscite question that is clear, and that will be decided on by a broad base of voters." HUH?! A vote on 'BARLEY' - we are talking about the marketing of Wheat here Chucky - not a much lesser marketed grain like barley! TORY WEASEL WORDS! - TORY DISHONESTY!
Shame on Chuck Strahl for his nonsense on this matter!
