Sale to Saudis rankles


Re: “Ottawa privatizes Canadian Wheat Board,” April 16 Saudi Arabia is the only country owned by a single family. Fifteen of the 19 chaps who took over four American passenger airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001 came from this friendly fiefdom. This absolute monarchy, ruling as a medieval theocracy, has supported the Wahhabists and their military arm, al-Qaida. Need I remind people where the late terrorist Osama bin Laden called home?

And now we hand to G3 Global Grain Group, an arm of this noble house, controllin­g interest in our own Canadian Wheat Board?
