Sorry, I'm a little slow on the Canadian news these days:
Agriculture Canada stands to get money from the sale of Monsanto's Round-up Ready Wheat. Documents obtained by CBC reveal the government will be paid a kind of royalty from sales of the Monsanto product. The documents obtained by CBC news reveal that Agriculture Canada has invested nearly $4 million in the development of Monsanto's product. A portion of that royalty would be a direct cash injection, but most of it would be wages paid to Agriculture Canada researchers who have worked on the development of the genetically modified (GM) wheat and seed material.

Also, apparently Pierre Trudeau resigned?
