Several hundred growers from across the province made their way to downtown Winnipeg to show their support for the C.W.B.

 At the rally, farmers passed a resolution which will be sent to Agriculture Minister Chuck Strahl.

The resolution reads: The Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board demand the threat of dismissal by the minister be rescinded.

District 10 Director, Bill Toews, says it's reckless for the federal government to act in that way toward Adrian Measner, President of the C.W.B.

At the rally Measner announced he's replied to Agriculture Minister Chuck Strahl's ultimatum of supporting marketing choice or being terminated.

In a faxed letter Measner outlined his continued support for the single desk based on the direction given to him by the C.W.B.'s board of directors..
