Review of the CWB Election – Kevin Bender, WCWGA

The Canadian Wheat Board election results are in and we didn’t even need a drum roll. The election was quiet before hand and even quieter after the results. Is there anything to take away from this election of the CWB?  Was this election as boring as it seemed and will voter eligibility changes come next?  I did some searches on Twitter and Facebook and didn’t even find much discussion there.  If the election wasn’t interesting is there anything that we can pull from the results that tell us something about the future of the CWB in Western Canada.

I talked to Kevin Bender, President of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers about his impressions of the CWB election and what he sees coming next for the supporters and dissidents of the single desk.
