The Canadian Wheat Board is officially dead

The Winnipeg Free Press:

The Supreme Court of Canada today denied Canadian Wheat Board backers the chance to appeal a court decision which let the federal government end the board’s monopoly last year.
The SCC denied leave to appeal to both the Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board and former CWB chair Allan Oberg.

After this final challenge was denied by supporters of the single-desk marketer of wheat and barley, the Conservative government can declare a final victory in dismantling the Canadian Wheat Board.

The Conservatives are now 3 for 3 on their Reform-era bumper-sticker wish:

“No Kyoto, No Gun Registry, No Wheat Board”
