Dion promises to reinstate Canadian Wheat Board if Tories scrap it
OTTAWA - Liberal Leader Stephane Dion says he will reinstate the Canadian Wheat Board as prime minister if the Conservative government dismantles it.

Dion says Prime Minister Stephen Harper is ''trampling'' on the board's spirit and effectiveness by firing its president and issuing a gag order preventing the body from defending itself.

The Conservatives have promised to end the board's long-standing monopoly on wheat and barley sales, saying they want to make participation voluntary.

Wheat board president Adrian Measner - who opposes the plan on the basis that it will effectively kill the board - was given two weeks' notice by Agriculture Minister Chuck Strahl last week.

Farmers are split on the issue, but a majority of the CWB's board members - elected by grain producers - want to keep the single-desk model laid out in the Canadian Wheat Board Act.

A plebiscite of farmers on ending the board's barley monopoly will be held in the new year, but no vote is planned for wheat
