Chuck Penner - Post CWB Monopoly Impacts on the Market


The world almost ended twice in 2012.  Farmers had to beware of the Mayan calendar but also earlier in the year the CWB officially lost it’s monopoly on the sale of wheat in Canada.

Some people predicted armageddon, while others believed that the benefits were huge.  Chuck Penner, LeftField Commodity Research talked to me on the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers Regional meeting tour about what he thinks the impact has been on the markets and for Western Canadian farmers in general.
