Dad just set up a huge solar panel array on his farm in SK. Huge incentives for that stuff right now. Should more than offcet the electricity he uses for drying grain.

Oh, and doing away with the wheat board has increased rail prices way more that this carbon tax will.

It's not even close.

This makes American farm products even more competitive! Thank you, Canadian Liberals! [B-o]

It was Stephen Harper who killed the Wheat Board . . .

My understanding is that the tax laws are set up to make it prohibitively expensive for farmers to pass on the family farm to children --- even for free.

Am I close?

If the farm is transferred to Canadian resident’s children, grandchildren, stepchildren or children-in-law, who want to continue running the business, tax liability can be deferred indefinitely.

Wife made blueberry pancakes last night, got me thinking. It's fucking Feb.
The blueberries are from Chile, and I don't recall seeing any Abbotsford blueberries last season.
If you can buy blueberries from Chile in Feb. for 59c a lb and sell them for $3.99 lb. would you go out of your way to buy the local ones in season and sell for 99c? I mean some local guy will fill his truck and sell it on the corner if you ask more than that.
Or would you wait until Feb when people see it and say Gee I'd really like some and you can make $2.40lb profit instead of $0.40lb?
"BC's Very Own Food People" wouldn't pull shit like that, would they Jimmie?

But no, that $2.40 increase is because of the .01% increase the carbon tax added. Right?

The problem, produce grown in South America and shipped here unripe tastes like shit. I buy local at the peak of taste, and preserve it. Not to mention the conditions that workers who pick it have to endure, and damage to the environment it causes.

I had Saskatoon jam on my bagel this morning, and it was delicious, because I picked and preserved them myself. For dinner I will have pyrogies with fried sauerkraut, the cabbage I got from local farmers and fermented myself. And someones' Baba made the pyrogies in a church basement.

That's why we make roadtrips for Chilliwack corn, blueberries from Abbitsford and Osoyoos fruits. The stores won't.
Saskatoons and huckleberries grow wild here, bumper crops last summer. Cherries from Terrace, just south of Quesnel they grow amazing corn.
Everything in the stores - they get partly frozen on the trucks (drivers don't give a shit) and as soon as it's ripe it's also rotten in the center. Every fucking fruit, on top of being tasteless.
Fortunately there's fleets of trucks every spring/summer weekend set up with fruit and veggies, freah fish from Prince Rupert.
They're the ones hit by carbon tax, but like the farmers they too get to write off fuel costs (that include the carbon tax).

What are you some sort of Commie who wants to share the costs of shipping products out of the second largest country in the world? The free market, especially when run by a Saudi conglomerate, is the only correct way to do business.

* Lots of Conservative supporters probably.

:wink:
