Canadian Wheat Board Simple Answers to Simple Questons

The Edmonton Journal writes:
The pro-market farmers expect higher returns once free of the board's monopoly, but what happens if those returns aren't realized? Will Canadian taxpayers be expected to foot the bill if farms begin to fail? And if farmers are allowed to fail, could food security in Canada be at risk?
The answers are: 1) The same farmers crying loudest for "choice" will cry loudest for a bailout, 2) yes and 3) although I suspect a government would break the bank to prevent a failure of the food supply, yes.
