Farmer Owed Hundreds of Thousands
When Puratone - one of the biggest hog producers in Manitoba - wanted to buy Robert Wiebe's winter wheat, he delivered. But the company only paid him for a third of the wheat before they went into bankruptcy protection this fall. Now Wiebe - a farmer from near Morden - is struggling without the three hundred thousand dollars Puratone owes him. Wiebe is just one of a long list of creditors. Puratone owes nearly 100 million dollars.
