KAP President Discusses CWB Deal

The president of Manitoba's largest general farm group says concerns over an equity buy-back-clause is the biggest issue with the recent sale of the Canadian Wheat Board.

 

Under the deal, G3 Global Grain Group will receive 50.1 per cent of the CWB for $250-million, with the option to buy out the remaining shares of equity after seven years.

Dan Mazier, president of Keystone Ag Producers, says different people have different view points on this issue.

"The history and the whole equity issue is a contentious issue and its a very divisive issue. People have views, there's court cases, there's all that stuff, but the reality is we have to deal with what's in front of us right now. Is this an opportunity or not? Each farmer will have to decide that themselves, and that's our bottom line."

Mazier says if G3 wants to keep up the confidence of Canadian farmers, open channels of communication will be key.
