Wheat board stranglehold broken with bill C-18. Red Deer farmer weeps in relief.

Chasing Apple Pie has posted a wonderful photograph taken after bill C-18 passed in the House of Commons yesterday.  "James Chatenay, a farmer from Red Deer, wipes a tear from his eye"

Added: A tribute to Small Dead Animals for many reports making known how the dead hand of the Wheat Board (which didn't apply to Ontario grains!) depressed farmer earnings.   Good example from 2010 tracking Spring Wheat spot prices versus Wheat Board's dismal showing.
