The muzzling of the Canadian Wheat Board is something you would see in a tin pot dictatorship, not a democratic nation like Canada.

That from Liberal Agriculture Critic Wayne Easter on the Tories prohibiting the Board from spending funds towards promoting the retention of its single desk powers.

He says the gag order is virtually unprecedented in Canadian law, and shows the Tory government will obviously use any means possible to undermine and destroy the C.W.B.


Easter notes the Liberals will be questioning the Conservatives on the move when Parliament reconvenes next week.
