COOL repeal bill not enough to deflect trade action from Canada: Ritz

© AgMedia Inc.


Canadian ag Minister, Gerry Ritz, is, of course, drinking election-year LSD, what with his fulminations about how absolutely vital it is for Canadian hog and cattle farmers to have unfettered access to US markets, while at the same time expressing horror at the thought that US dairy and poultry farmers should have even a smidgen of access to ours.

Go figure, being brain-dead, or otherwise being unable to see both sides of any issue, seems to be necessary to hold, or even run for, elected public office in any sector of agriculture in Canada, and the hyperbole coming from Ritz's office of late would seem to prove it.
