Pro Wheat Board Farmers Continue To Fight Conservative Plan To Dismantle Board
Well, ignoring the will of farmers is something the Harper government is getting good at so the groups sent representatives to Ottawa anyway to inform the public exactly what is happening with the Wheat Board and the make-up of today's meeting.
The Harper Conservative government planned to end single desk barley sales after conducting a rigged vote that excluded thousands of producers. However, the plan was stopped when the Federal Court ruled Ottawa could NOT end the CWB mandate without a full vote of Parliament. The Harper government is appealing the Federal Court decision and the case will be heard in court late next month.
