The previous Agriculture Minister, Chuck Strahl, had also proposed ending the monopoly. McDowell was on the right-wing of the Progressive Conservatives, and was considered a reactionary even by other members of his party. Extremely proud of his position on the grain commission, he opposed the Canadian Wheat Board as unwarranted government interference in the marketplace. During a 1953 legislative debate on the issue, he made the following statement: "Why, if Communism ever came to this county - and I pray God it won't - they won't have to change a thing in this act, only the penalties. Instead, you'll be shot in the morning, that's all!" (''Winnipeg Free Press'', March 17, 1953). *'''Object'''.

In my eyes, Agriculture isn't just planting and growing, it's also selling and transporting the finished product. For example, the North American "wheat rush" every fall can generate revenues large enough to subsidize some small railroads for an entire year. Many farmers in America join together into co-ops to market and transport their crops to buyers. The Canadian Wheat Board was setup as an agency

The '''Canadian Wheat Board''' ( ) is a marketing board for wheat and barley in Western Canada. Established by the Parliament of Canada on July 5, 1935, its operation was governed by the Canadian Wheat Board Act as a mandatory producer marketing (marketing board) system for wheat and barley in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and a small part of British Columbia. It was illegal for any farmer in areas under the CWB's jurisdiction to sell their wheat and barley through any other channel than the CWB. Although often called a monopoly, it was actually a monopsony since it was the only ''buyer'' of wheat and barley.

Amid criticism, the Canadian Wheat Board's monopsony officially ended on August 1, 2012 as a result of Bill C-18, which was tabled by the Harper government (Premiership of Stephen Harper) and passed in December 2011. The CWB continues to operate as a voluntary marketing organization. This will no longer be an option by 2016, the government imposed deadline for when privatization must occur.
