Court Condemns Harper's Government 'Unconstitutional' Gag Order On Wheat Board!
The Federal Conservative government violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms when it issued a gag order on officials with the Canadian Wheat Board in 2006, the Federal Court has ruled. Actions by the Harper Government to gag the Canadian Wheat Board are 'unconstitutional'!
"A Federal Court judge has struck down a Harper government gag order that restrains the Canadian Wheat Board from promoting its monopoly powers.
In a ruling released this morning, Judge Roger T. Hughes agreed with the wheat board that the government order contravened the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The government directive prevented the wheat board from spending money promoting its single desk powers."
