Mr. Speaker, I thank the minister for that irrelevant answer.
Bill C-46 kills democratic producer control over the Wheat Board. By the stroke of a pen in the middle of the night, the minister will have the power to destroy the board by issuing a secret cabinet order. There will be no reference to Parliament, or the courts, or the Wheat Board's producer directors. There will be no democratic right for farmers to vote.
Why has the minister launched a sneak attack on prairie farmers just to please his Republican friends in Washington?
