PFRA PICKLEThe government reckoned it’s time to hang the PFRA pastures. It’s an ideological thing. We’ll throw it over to Saskatchewan – let those cowboys swing. Now the Saskatchewan party’s got a hot potato, it’s a political fiasco. They don’t want it, how to get rid of it, what’s it worth, who in the hell would know. The feds have set aside Agriculture, Enbridge is a much better partner in bed. Let those cowboys hang, they don’t care – they’ll feed ‘em ecoli instead. The province agrees, PFRA don’t matter, Agriculture just ain’t their mission. They’ll spend the money on a football stadium and with it replace Agribition. They want all the patrons to form individual Associations, co-ops, companies and such. Patrons will pay more, lose the equity they have and maintain unity – not very much. Then the First Nations came forth, opportunity for fulfilment of treaty rights to the letter. For sure politicians wouldn’t be here if their initial immigration policy had of been better. Conservation, environment and wildlife will all be overturned with a tandem disc. Only thing for sure is our pasture managers have become the next species at risk. The government bureaucracy is in a pickle, no one seems to know why or how. All patrons know – they’ll sure be paying more when this land is grazed by a cow. Dealing with government levels has become a quagmire, makes one wonder if they’re sober. Next time you gaze into the blank eyes of your MLA – you might as well just bend over.
