The decision is disappointing because farmers have clearly told us in over 100 town hall meetings and thousands of one-on-one conversations that they want to acquire majority interest in the CWB, but most needed time after harvest to fully assess the opportunity. Unfortunately, the deadline for raising capital passed before harvest was completed, denying farmers adequate time. Despite this great opportunity having been taken from growers, Genesis Grain and Fertilizer Limited Partnership is still going ahead.
