U. Of S. Graduate School Of Public Policy Disproves LIES Told By Ag Minister Gerry Ritz Concerning Changes To The Canadian Wheat Board

Viability of a Voluntary CWB
The removal of the CWB’s single desk selling powers will almost inevitably result in either the disappearance of the CWB or the diminution of its scope and volume to the point where it is not a serious player in the market. Although farmers have indicated that they would like the option of marketing to either the CWB or to other buyers, in reality this choice is highly unlikely to ever exist. Once its single-desk selling powers are removed, the CWB will not be a viable alternative. This non-viability is not a function of insufficient desire or poor management. Rather, the inability for the CWB to operate in a so-called “marketing choice” environment is a direct consequence of the nature of pooling and of the structural realities of the grain industry at this point in time.

The dumb farmers'll still vote Conservative even after their farms are sold to agribusiness and they're nothing but serfs.

To be fair, the LPC and NDP failed to make this a campaign issue. They failed to tie Harper's handling of the CWB with the broader theme of contempt.
