Minister pressed to maintain wheat board

Dual marketing -a concept whose time has come- let the producers choose PR
Minister pressed to maintain wheat board: "WINNIPEG -- Federal Agriculture Minister Chuck Strahl ventured into not-altogether-friendly territory Monday, meeting with officials from the Canadian Wheat Board - an institution whose monopoly he plans to take away.
'What I said to the wheat board's board of directors is the same thing that I've been saying publicly . . . that our campaign promise was to move toward dual marketing,' Strahl told reporters after the get-together. "
