Farmers make a killing by killing 150,00 pigs for no reason

Erik says: "Now that Canada's fishermen are almost done with clubbing seals for the year, the Canadian government has turned its attention to the pigs. Ottawa has just approved a massive bail out of pig farmers at taxpayer expense. They've worked out a deal for pig farmers to kill of 150,000 pigs by the autumn, in exchange for a $50 million payout. Not a single ounce of that flesh will become ham or back bacon – it'll all be ground up into pet food or otherwise disposed of so as to prop up pork prices." Link
