Across the Border

A reminder that the free market has not always been universally accepted--the Canadian minister of agriculture says:
"Attempts by the Wheat Board to invent an imitation marketplace fall far short of the expressed will of barley producers. Farmers have demanded marketing choice. No bureaucratic program can replace this. It is time for the CWB to stop ignoring this unavoidable fact.
It's also interesting that the Minister doesn't have power over the Canadian Wheat Board.
