understands its a stupid judge.
Parliament can change law
OTTAWA CITIZEN DECEMBER 9, 2011
The Federal Court has decided the government's legislation making changes to the Canadian Wheat Board is an "affront to the rule of law." This is a serious finding, but it was not an inevitable conclusion. It required the court to give weight to a particular interpretation of another law, and to decide that what Parliament meant to say isn't precisely what it did say.
What Parliament did say, in Section 47.1 of the Canadian Wheat Board Act, added in 1998, is that no government can add or subtract any particular kind of grain to the wheat board's mandate without consulting the board, and getting a favourable vote from farmers in a "voting process ... determined by the Minister."
This government doesn't want to add or subtract a type of grain. It wants to remove the board's marketing monopoly - the "single desk" - so farmers can decide how and to whom they sell their products.
