Talking to Farmers - Should There Be a Vote on the Future of the CWB?


At the Farm Progress Show in Regina this week we asked farmers several questions.  On day one we asked farmers whether or not there should be a vote on the future of the CWB.  As we have discussed before, one of the controversial issues surrounding Gerry Ritz announcing the end of the single desk has been that there will be no vote on the future of the CWB.  Farmers seem very divided on this topic but it doesn’t seem that anything is going to change.

In Regina at the show we asked farmers what they think the future of the CWB should be.  As you find in the video clip below, the farmers that are against a vote believe that the results of the federal election speak for themselves.  Across from our booth the CWB was collecting signatures for a petition asking the exact same question.

I will assure you that I have not lead the answers given by the farmers or left out any answers.  The answers you see in the video are exactly what the farmers told me.
