Mr. Speaker, the Canadian Wheat Board has never been as closed, secretive and non-transparent as it is today. There is no data in the annual report, no financial statements and no examination by the Auditor General. This agency, concocted and directed by the government, is playing with hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money and, worse still, hundreds of millions of dollars in assets originally taken from western Canadian farmers.
What about public disclosure and public accountability? Will the government guarantee that farmers' money and assets will not be sold off in secret?
