Updated: Strahl Stalled. What Happens Next?

Minister of Agriculture and Agrifood Chuck Strahl and by extension Prime Minister Steve, were on the receiving end of a Federal Court smack down Tuesday which in essence reminds them that when they try to govern our nation by executive fiat they are breaking the law.

“In a ruling issued Tuesday, Federal Court Judge Dolores Hansen said the government overstepped its authority in trying to end the monopoly through a simple cabinet order.


The government changed the board's barley-handling through regulations approved by the Conservative cabinet.

Critics successfully argued changes in the powers of the CWB can only be made by a vote of Parliament — something that could be blocked by the opposition.”
