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?
