Just to compare:
Maybe a whole different kettle of fish, but in NY state, dairy farmers are allowed to sell to whomever to get the best price they can. Well managed dairy farms have gone bust trying.
In Ontario, OMMB guarantees the farmer a good price for milk, and ensures we don't get gutted at the supermarket.
One has to buy milk quota to get started, and it therefore costs a lot, and it's very difficult to get a new dairy operation off the ground. It also ensures we are safe from fly - by - night operations.
Sometimes ya need govt. oversight, regulation, and control.
Canada may not be first in the race to the bottom, but, by jeebus, we're catching up!!
