Really? Screw the Canadians, but keep the profits happening?
Justin Trudeau, if you really are committed to doing 'the right thing', you'll suspend any transfers of arms to these blaggards, cancel any oil contracts, and stop all farmers sending their wheat and barley crops to the Canadian Wheat Board.
Yep - the Saudis hold the majority of our Canadian Wheat Board - thanks that asshole Stephen Harper.
Amid criticism, the Canadian Wheat Board's Single Desk marketing power officially ended on 1 August 2012 as a result of Bill C-18, also known as the Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act, which was tabled by the Harper government and passed in December 2011.
The Canadian Wheat Board changed its name to simply CWB, reflecting its changed status. CWB continued to operate as a grain company, although the bill also set a timeline for the eventual privatization of CWB.
On 15 April 2015, it was announced that a 50.1% majority stake in CWB would be acquired by Global Grain Group, a joint venture of Bunge Limited and the Saudi Agricultural and Livestock Investment Company, for $250 million. The CWB name has been changed to G3 Canada Limited.
And as for the amount of oil we buy from the Saudis, it's time that Alberta and Rachel Notley started REFINING their black tar in their own back yard - using up their water, poisoning their land and air, and then selling the lovely refined product TO CANADIANS so that we don't have to make trade deals with the likes of Saudi Arabia.
Mr Trudeau, get the Saudis out of our wheat board and get their oil the hell out of our ports.
