Grain dumped at Regina MPs' offices
Two Regina Conservative MPs have been targeted in an apparent protest over the federal government's plans to dismantle the Canadian Wheat Board's marketing monopoly.
Someone dumped piles of grain in front of the riding offices of Tom Lukiwski (Regina-Lumsden-Lake Centre) and House Speaker Andrew Scheer (Regina-Qu'Appelle) on Monday.
Some farmers in Saskatchewan have opposed the Conservative government's move to end the wheat board's monopoly over the marketing of western wheat and barley.
The Conservatives' bill to strip the wheat board of its monopoly passed in the House of Commons on Nov. 28.
The bill is now going to the Senate, where it will face three rounds of votes and a committee examination before it becomes law.
