        The results of the elections for five of the fifteen directors of the Canadian Wheat Board were released today. Four to one opposing the New Con direction.
        
         Strahl implementing what U.S. failed to achieve is a Letter to the Editor expressing my view.  Below are links to articles which support the position taken.
        
        There will be no Digest tomorrow in that we are travelling to Bradford to attend a "Grandparents Afternoon " at a school there.
        
        Articles will be collected for inclusion on the Daily Digest December 12, 2006.
        
        Those supporting the New Government of Canada's position regarding the CWB are invited to send articles supporting their position.
