It has come to my attention that the Conservative Government plans to ignore the decision of Prairie farmers to continue to market their wheat and barley through the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB).
I also understand that section 47.1 of the Canadian Wheat Board Act enshrines farmers' right to have a say in changes to the CWB. The Government has stated their intention to repeal this section so they can get rid of Prairie farmers' marketing board.
Our country is founded on the principles of democracy. I implore you to listen to farmers and respect the plebiscite conducted this summer. Your decision on this matter will have far reaching implications for the future of Canadian family farms, our food system and Canadians' faith in our democracy.
