Christie Blatchford: How much do I love Max Bernier? Let me count the cartels


I love him so much I read Chapter 5 of his as yet unpublished book. The chapter is entitled "Live or Die With Supply Management." Given my reading material tends to the police procedural, preferably Norwegian, this should have been hard work. It wasn't. Bernier writes like most of us talk.

I love his unabashed use of the word "cartel"- both in this chapter and in his daily language - to describe the supply management system used to keep the price of Canadian dairy, poultry and eggs artificially high.
