More To Life

While European farmers deal with the devastation wrought by foot and mouth disease, Canadian grain farmers are also claiming their livelihood is threatened by lack of government funds. They took to the streets last week protesting for more subsidies than the government is willing to offer. Do they need it? Should they get it?
