John Fefchak, Virden, MB said…
For the most, I think farmers will acknowledge the courts
decision not to hear the appeal case, and continue on with
their normal everyday lives and challenges.
But every once in awhile they will be jolted by a distinct
wafting 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 vote
for those who support single desk selling.
Consulting of farmers ended up as Insulting of farmers.
Yes, the single desk selling 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.
