Tory Agriculture Minister Strahl Steps In Cowpie

In the House of Commons on Thursday, Strahl was again under fire for his decision to only hold a plebiscite on the open marketing of barley and not wheat.

"Every time the agriculture minister makes a wheat board decision, he steps in what Prairie folk politely call a cow pie," NDP agriculture critic Alex Atamanenko said.

"The minister has denied wheat farmers the right to vote on the board's future. He set up a sham task force with the sole goal of dismantling the single desk.

"Does the minister want to wipe some of that meadow muffin off his shoes and announce today that he will hold a fair vote on the future of the wheat board and announce that wheat farmers will also have a vote?"
