Companies continue to destroy rainforest, drive species to extinction, produce massive climate emissions and abuse the human rights of their workers - all for palm oil. Photo by Uwe Aranas.
What's that Smell?It was no secret the federal government wanted the CWB off its books.Farmers have been plowed under,as they now have little control over the future of the new CWB.Every once in awhile, many farmers will be jolted by a distinctwafting of an unpleasant odour that emanates from the office of Canada's agriculture minister. This will be a reminder of Minister Ritz, and his abandonment of a promise to consult with farmers and respect a votefor those who were in support of single desk selling."Consulting of farmers ended up as Insulting of farmers".Yes, the single desk selling of the original, now deceased CWB, has been terminated, but the officious manner in how it was accomplished will be remembered for a long time …..maybe even to the next Federal election which is just a few months away.
