The Harper government has just given away the Canadian Wheat Board to an American and Saudi Arabian-owned corporation. To add insult to injury, just last year a group of Canadian farmers tried to buy the Wheat Board assets for more than what the company is “buying” it for now, but were refused.
With a federal election coming up in the fall, this is a real opportunity for us to make sure that whoever governs Canada for the next four years will stand up for farmers. To make this an election issue, we need to send a strong message to MPs that we want a government that will stand with Canadian farmers. Join me in calling on the Canadian government to stand up for our farmers and reverse the sale of the wheat board http://action.sumofus.org/a/save-the-wheat-board/?sub=mtl
