It’s time to scrutinize the Canadian Dairy commission’s provincial and federal structures to speed decision making says its newly appointed CEO


It's only fitting that in 2012, one hundred years after the Titanic sank, the Canadian Dairy Commission is studiously "re-arranging the deck chairs" of the supply management "Titanic".

The Commission still studiously ignores the continually declining rate of milk consumption in Canada compared to the US, and also studiously ignores the fact that declining sales always means your "business model" isn't working.

Last, but not least, the Commission studiously ingores that there are still oodles of farmers, with bank-approvals in hand, ready at a moment's notice to produce milk at export prices.
