In mid September, Better Farming staff headed north, retracing the Pigeon King’s route from Waterloo to Cochrane. They inspected some of the assets purchased with the now-bankrupt company’s money and asked neighbours about the man who left roughly 1,000 investors holding worthless pigeons.
Former PKI Ontario sales consultant Ken Wagler stands by assertions made in an earlier interview with Better Farming that the chicken industry is trying to thwart efforts by former PKI growers to find a use for their pigeons. He won’t name names however and chicken producers reject his claims.
A former salesman says Arlan Galbraith, architect of a now-defunct Waterloo based pigeon breeding scheme, had a solid vision. Ken Wagler still sees opportunity with the pigeon business but he’s wary of conspirators who don’t want it to fly
