CFO's Popularity Contest

Chicken Farmers of Ontario ("CFO"), the Don of Ontario's #ChickenMafia, has become very popular folks.

The above graph from Google Trends shows all Canadian Internet searches on Google from 2004 to present.  From 2004 to January 2008, nobody cared about CFO.  Nobody.

Since January 2008, CFO has been a consistently hot topic in Ontario.

I wonder why.

Avian flu was a few years before Jan. 2008, so this isn't a likely cause.

World Trade Organization talks at Doha had collapsed the year before, but a report to the US Congress was released in Jan. 2008, which eventually served as the basis for restarting Doha negotiations later in the summer of 2008.

Was this WTO Doha activity that started and continued CFO as a "party of interest" on an ongoing basis ever since?

Of course, today its Supply Management and mis-management that has CFO in the sniper's cross hairs.
