No surprise as to what happened in Canola market today.

Trudeau has been chirping about protecting the economy and good paying Canadian jobs in his rebuke to the SNC scandal. Now I need to refresh my Canadian history as to where the boundary was between Upper and Lower Canada. Looks like JT is only worried about good paying jobs for his corrupt buddies in Lower Canada. Heck MB, SK, AB, BC aren't even part of Canada according to the map I looked at. We are in RupertsLand. No wonder JT not worried about us. We are in a different country.

If he was truly worried about the economy and good jobs the Trans Mountain pipeline and the Energy East pipelines would be a done deal. More jobs and $ at stake in Alberta alone than all of SNC put together. And thats not factoring in all the taxes and royalties Ottawa would be collecting.

As far as the China debacle goes if the Feds were smart this all could have been avoided if some thought and tact were used. China's response is no surprise.

The canola market took a hit today.
My math based on total canola crop.

21,300,000 MT x -$2.90 / MT drop = $ 61,770,000 hit to canola market today only.

Now lets compare SNC.

Approx est 9000 CDN employees x 8 hr/day x $ 30 / HR = $ 2,160,000 daily wages.
I can't comment on how many bribe $$$ at stake in Canada. Have no idea how many pigs at the trough collecting on this one!

I guess in comparison to canola SNC is small potatoes. Could even call it collateral damage.

Maybe because we don't have to pay out bribes to give away our oil and canola we aren't entitled to help and special treatment from Ottawa!!

Maybe we need to lobby for compensation on the canola market.

When feds put tariffs on steel, aluminum and other products they promissed some help to affected industries.

Heck even the Canadian media got something like $590 million to help out in tough times!! Conveniently a year before an election to encourage favorable news coverage no doubt??????

It's not all bad. Look on the bright side. WE ARE A RULE OF LAW COUNTRY !!!

More like ; WE ARE A DISFUNCTIONAL COUNTRY !!!!

Thanks JT

Heard a good one this past week, Justin's not concerned about any job but his own. He'll do whatever he needs to do to stay in the PMO. This is just going from bad to worse. Think Justin would notice if we switched October to April so we can have the election now before his bought and paid for media shills can find a way to bury this below breaking news like Justin Beiber got a new cat or something. Although I'm not sure there are many journalists that have anything too kind to say about JT right now

Itís almost un believable that the voters of Regina have kept ralphie employed for so long. Itís a black mark on a great province.
So this thread, from now on,blames the drop in canola prices on the Canadian government. I guess they are responsible for the drop in Soybeans in the US as well! Please explain

Have you not watched the news since the last federal election?? And no, he has no influence on the US soybean prices, just Canadian canola.

Yeah I’m curious too, Nodust. Do we want an independent judiciary and the ability to call for JT’s head for attempting to corrupt it for Quebec, or do we just want him to erode democracy evenly for the benefit of the east and the west?

It was the US that started this haiwei mess by requesting the execs arrest and extradition for violating the sanctions trump put back on Iran. Should Canadian law enforcement have ignored the extradition treaties to protect us economically?

Of course China is going to swing its d ick. It’s what they do. And it sucks it hit us as farmers. Unfortunately we got caught between a rock(the US) and s hard place(China). We were screwed either way.

I was wondering if China was going to try and hit back this way, probably one of the only ways they know how.


Here soybean prices have been floating around the same point for the past couple months but dropped a little lately, although some might be seasonal. (John Deere lows, ect...) Lots of grain getting sold around the end of February to pay bills, time will tell if they go back up later. However if the cold weather keeps up and forces a late spring might be a lot more soybeans in the ground than planned for.


Time to get creative and find more uses for canola and soys in the Americas or else a short list of other countries, China loves to throw their weight around a bit once in a while.

Honestly I blame the dumb bitch for getting herself caught. The US are after her because of dealings with Iran. Hummmm let’s fly into a country that has close ties to the US. Geee you think Canada and the US might have extrications treaty’s???? Moron. Or was it ego that Canada would do nothing

The embarrassing part is Canada was handed a great bargains chip but will JT use it.. of course not

I think the point was that soybeans have a definite impact on canola.

This year there was more downside risk than upside. Around here we had several chances at $11/bushel so far, which is a respectable price. Lower prices might stimulate more demand and help move some product. Nobody is forced to sell into current market conditions unless they need the cash, in which case you should have been making sales month(s) prior given market factors that are well known.
