Turkey Talk

This page will contain a list of the many links I’ve discovered on the Internet regarding the heavy-handed regulations the Nova Scotia Turkey Producers Marketing Board are trying to force upon small processing businesses located in rural communities across the province. If you know of a link to a newspaper article, radio interview, video, blog post or other writing about this subject, please forward to me (tibert@live.com) or note it in the comment section below.

  1. There has been a movement called “The Progressives” for almost a century. It has nothing to do with the Conservative Party (Fed. or Prov.) As a matter of fact they just call themselves “Conservative Party” now. The Progressives are basically Marxists and have slowly infiltrated the Liberal Party and the idea of Liberalism. See Wikipedia “Progressivism” and read it all. Then you will understand what Keith Colwell is all about.
