Farmers Once Again ELECT Pro-Wheat Board Directors - Stick That In Your Pipe You Right Wing Kooks!

"The Conservative bid to dramatically change the Canadian Wheat Board may have to wait another few years after farmers elected a roster of directors who largely favour the agency the way it is.

“Four out of the five directors who were elected publicly support single-desk marketing,” said Wheat Board chair Allen Oberg, who was himself was re-elected. “Our numbers tell us that farmers are generally supportive of the organization. I think this election confirmed that.”

Single-desk marketing refers to the Wheat Board’s monopoly on selling grain and barley. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has personally pledged to dismantle the barley monopoly in favour of giving farmers more choice in their grains sales. Supporters of that agenda were disappointed by the vote, which saw three directors re-elected and two new faces – Stewart Wells, a former president of the left-leaning National Farmers Union, and John Sandborn, who has served with several Manitoba farmer cooperatives."

My goodness Iain, I don't remember you getting jerked down and your bell being rung enough when you used to ride bulls to be such a left-wing ideologue! Or perhaps it's to many years of rampant socialism in the great province of Saskatchewan that has your thought process askew.
