The Federal Government is attacking democracy in Canada.
Farmers lost the Wheat Pool a few years ago. Its demise was brought about by legislation that killed the Crow Rate.
The single desk Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) was destroyed by the present federal government. It refused to give farmers a vote even though existing legislation stated the government must let farmers make major decisions regarding the CWB.
According to a recent news release the federal government is now attacking co-operatives in general! The Tory government seems determined to greatly weaken or destroy the co-operative movement.
Farmers are not the only ones under attack. Recent government policy takes away from the 99% who receive 67% of available income and favours - the one per cent who receive 33 per cent of world income.
It could be said they take from the poor and give to the rich! Robin Hood in Reverse!! There is no doubt if the present Conservative government has its way; we will revert back to something equivalent to the Feudal system.
Canada and the world will be dominated and controlled by a few huge multinational corporations!
