Saturday was Food Day Canada

Aug 2, 2011 | 09:20 1 This past Saturday Canadians celebrated their local food.

I have included a great article from The Record in Waterloo about the event.

Did you participate in Food Day? Or did you even know about it??

I would be interested on hearing your thoughts.

Further... the Alberta Government is as much responsible under the consitution in the new system as the Federal Government.

Agriculture is shared Fed/Prov. jurisdiction.

WHere are the Provincial governments in this? Just saying you are in favour is more than a little 'Shallow'!!! Reply With Quote
Aug 2, 2011 | 13:02 3 Tom, I don't get it. Why do we need a voluntary wheat board? Just average your sales over the year and there is your pooling price. The supporters of the CWB forced you to pool your grain with theirs , so why are you so kind to them now. They are a bunch of whiners and behave like spoiled brats-send the sobs home and lets get on with selling grain in the real world. I want the Wayne Gretskys of the grain business selling grain,not my local high school team. Reply With Quote

We promised... that is why.

Chairman Oberg is attempting to make all the grain growers who would like to deal with 'A strong competitive commercial voluntary CWB'... look like fools as well.

You bring to our attention that Chairman Oberg is wearing us down... to prove his point.

The point that 'A strong competitive commercial voluntary CWB' is impossible to acheive.

I am to the point where I say SELL the CWB. Take what assets they have... give them to the new owner... and deposit the sale price to the Reciever General of Canada... just like the CWB Act requires.

Chairman Oberg has intentionally spoiled a great opportunity for western CDN grain growers to add value and better serve our industry and country.

Only in Canada.

TRULY a PITY PARTY. Reply With Quote
