If you're going to dream why not dream big? Dream of a government with the balls to nationalize G3. "Assets of vital national interest being held by a hostile foreign entity" - sounds like a slam dunk case for a need to nationalize. Reply With Quote
Aug 8, 2018 | 11:53 3 Which sounds better?
Viterra G3?
Pioneer G3?
Cargil G3?
because i imagine they are falling all over each other trying to get to KSA. Reply With Quote

Read somewhere that it was in the Grain Act that farmers can't get their money back. Not sure what sec of the Act. Reply With Quote

Aug 8, 2018 | 21:10 9 At least two of us are in Ralph’s constituency and I have known him for many years. I personally don’t think that he would approve of most of recent federal governance, but maybe I am not a good judge of character. If I were him and I am not, I would distance myself from federal Liberals and the faster the better. Reply With Quote
Aug 8, 2018 | 22:42 10 Yes farmers should buy it but how?
What group and who can speak for all farmers?
I sure don’t want the government involved in any way! Reply With Quote
Aug 8, 2018 | 23:26 11 Government or farmer owned is fine.
Go for it.
But if it was government owned the next Harper clone
Elected would trash it.
Better stick with farmer owned. Reply With Quote

Aren't/weren't most the farmer owned terminals in bed with one of the big boys anyway? A bit of a facade then I'd say...still need their port capacity and international sales teams it seems. Reply With Quote
Aug 9, 2018 | 00:13 13 Yes it is a tough game for a small player.

The problem with any venture like this , is that if you get big enough to make a difference, and cut into the big players pie.

Whether it be seed,chemical or grain handling.

With budgets bigger than a lot of country's.
They can and will run you out of business so fast.

They only have to out compete or be nice to customers you till you are out of business.

Then back to same old ripoffs.

The only way the wheat pools survived like they did was because of super committed members ,
That had been burnt really bad by the line Co.s

I do not think farmers will have that kind of commitment today.

The Richardson's could outbid your
Little company long enough to finish you off.

Sad but true. Combined with farmers inability to work together I doubt it's going anywhere.
As the Government gave farmers assets to G3 for free I say they should take them back for free and give them back to farmers. Why should you have to pay for the return of something that was stolen from you? Reply With Quote
