Ritz on the Wheat Board plebiscite

It's quick, you'll get it in the first ten seconds. More here, "Ritz takes swipe at CWB; says plebiscite irrelevant," and in this piece which quotes Oberg, the Wheat Board Chair with details on the summer's plebiscite. The result will be in before the fall parliamentary session during which the Harper government will seek to end the Wheat Board's single desk system with new legislation. If the 60 to 70,000 farmers eligible to vote indicate that they support retaining the single desk, you'd like to think that in a democratic nation that would count for something.
