Should corn burning stoves be sold in Saskatchewan?

A Saskatchewan man has lost his Provincial Court claim for damages related to a hybrid wood pellet/corn stove he purchased from the defendant in the case.  After only one week of use, James Turnbull began to experience problems with the stove.  It was determined that the problems arose because Turnbull was burning "grain", rather than wood pellets or corn.  Turnbull argued that corn stoves shouldn't be sold in Saskatchewan, since it's not a corn growing province.  The Court ruled that burning grain in the stove was a misuse of the stove and, therefore, Turnbull was not entitled to any damages.
