T-2191-04: Supplementary Affidavit of Deborah
Federal Court - Trial Division
Arthur Mainil (Plaintiff)
The Canadian Wheat Board and Meyers Norris Penny (Defendants)
Supplementary Affidavit of Deborah Harri
I, Deborah Harri, Corporate Secretary of the defendant The Canadian Wheat
Board, of the City of Winnipeg, in the Province of Manitoba, affirm that:
- I am the Corporate Secretary of the defendant
The Canadian What Board and as such have personal knowledge of the
facts hereinafter deposed to by me, except where the same are stated
to be based upon information and belief in which case I believe them
to be true. I make this affidavit supplemental to my Affidavit sworn
December 13th, 2004 (my "First Affidavit") and in response
to certain material filed since I swore that Affidavit.
- Section 24(1)(d) of The Canadian Wheat Board
Act (the "Act") provides that, subject to the consent of The
Canadian Wheat Board ("CWB"), producers are to deliver their
grain to the "delivery point" which is named in their Permit
Book. That delivery point is typically a grain elevator chosen by the
Producer when he applies for the Permit Book.
- Typically, the delivery point is a grain
elevator close to land upon which the Producer grows grain.
- For new applicants, CWB uses the delivery
point specified by the Producer to determine the appropriate Electoral
District (the "District"). Each year thereafter, an
application for for a Permit Book is sent to the Producer which
indicates the District to which they have been assigned.
- As indicated in my First Affidavit and in the
Affidavit of Peter Eckersley sworn December 10, 2004, as part of the
process of developing a voters list, Producers are again notified of
the designated District and given the opportunity to correct any error
in the designated District.
- The first election for elected directors
occurred in 1998. Prior to 1998 CWB was governed by Commissioners
appointed by the federal government. The first election occurred in
1998 when all ten elected directors were elected for the first time.
The terms of the directors elected from even numbered Districts in
1998 were two years, not four years. In the year 2000 the five
directors from even numbered Districts were elected for four year
Affirmed before me at the City of Winnipeg in
the Province of Manitoba on December 17, 2004.
