Wheat board fight continues


The head of the wheat board fears the future.


    The head of the Canadian Wheat Board says he fears for the future of other farmers if a law to dismantle his agency passes.
    Allen Oberg says once the federal Conservatives have dispensed with the wheat board, their next target will be the marketing of other commodities, such as milk, eggs and chicken.
    He says the Harper government is being hypocritical when it argues that wheat farmers ought to have marketing freedom while at the same time it controls the supply of these products.


    A deadly blast at a grain elevator in Kansas is reminding people of the dangers workers face inside elevators brimming with highly combustible grain dust.
    Crews suspended their search Sunday for three people missing after a thunderous explosion in Atchison on Saturday killed three workers and hospitalized two others with severe burns.
    The blast sent an orange fireball into the night sky.
    Officials with Bartlett Grain Company decided to temporarily halt the search because it was unsafe to be inside the facility.
