Show Notes:

If a private member's bill passes later this month, the Canadian Wheat Board will no longer be the single seller of grain to processors. This will benefit big grain companies and multinationals - and be another nail in the coffin of small farmers in Canada. Wendy Holm is a BC agrologist, economist and writer. She explains why we should all oppose this bill.
