Canadian Wheat Board

Posted 6/23/2011 by Grant Mitchell


Here is a question I asked in the Senate about the Government's plans for the Canadian Wheat Board.

Honourable senators, in the November 2009 submission of the United States Wheat Associates to the U.S. Trade Representative, the USWA made this powerful point: The single-most important action to come out of the multilateral World Trade Organization process would be the elimination of export enterprises like the Canadian Wheat Board.

They are so happy about this turn of events that they are probably smiling like a horse eating thistle. What concession will Canada receive in return for giving up this tremendous advantage to U.S. wheat growers?
