I saw this in the newspaper today and felt it worth repeating:
In the next 60 days, the Conservative Government is going to eliminate the Canadian Wheat Board. As a result, thousands of farmers will be left on their own to negotiate their price against giant American multinational grain companies.
This is a recipe for failed farms, lower prices for farmers and ultimately, American control of a Canadian industry.
-- 62% of farmers voted in a plebiscite for wheat to keep the Canadian Wheat Board.
-- By law, Prime Minister Harper must put the dismantling of the CWB to a vote amongst farmers. He has not.
-- The CWB has been a strong voice for farmers and delivered superior financial returns to farmers for over 75 years.
--In accordance with NAFTA, if the CWB is dismantled, it can never be brought back.
Prime Minister Harper wants the CWB dismantled by Christmas.
Speak up for farmers and take action TODAY.
If you think the Prime Minister is a douchebag, as I do, for doing this, text FARMER to 24680. You can also visit this link: www.stopthesteamroller.ca
