Canadian Wheat Board election results were announced yesterday (Sunday). Directors were up for election in the odd-numbered districts. The overall ballot response rate was just 41.3 per cent. As of last night, the actual vote counts had not been released. In District 1, incumbent Henry Vos of Fairview, Alberta was returned for a second term. He was victorious over a single desk supporter. In District 3, Stewart Wells of Swift Current will be the new director. As a former president of the National Farmers Union, Wells is a staunch single desk supporter, much like outgoing director Larry Hill. In District 5, incumbent Allen Oberg of Forestburg, Alberta has won a third term. He’s the current chair of the CWB and a strong single desk supporter. He defeated Vicki Dutton of Paynton, Saskatchewan. In District 5, incumbent and single desk supporter Kyle Korneychuk of Pelly held off a challenge from Terry Youzwa of Nipawin. In District 9, single desk supporter John Sandborn of Benito, Manitoba was elected. With the election, the balance between directors who support the single desk versus those who support marketing freedom has not changed. I’m Kevin Hursh.
