Canadian Wheat Board Alliance
(Pelly, Sk., March 3, 2014) The Canadian Wheat Board Alliance is inviting farmers to a public meeting, Sunday, March 9th, one PM, at the Elks Hall in Raymore, Saskatchewan.
There will be updates on the chaos in grain marketing, the new check-off organizations in Saskatchewan responsible for allocating farmers’ plant breeding research dollars, and a status report on the Class Action lawsuit now in process launched by the Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board.
“This is also an opportunity for farmers to hear from our Parliamentary representatives in Ottawa about the latest from the capital and to give producers an opportunity to send their own message back to Ottawa” said Kyle Korneychuk, spokesperson for the Canadian Wheat Board Alliance, a prairie wide organization representing grain farmers.
The meeting is free and open to the public. For those wishing to stay for a beef supper after the meeting, please pre-register for the meal so we know how much food we need. The cost is twenty dollars per plate. Contact Wayne at 306-746-2180 to register.
