Thank you very much.

Mr. Agnew, I'd like to discuss Bill C-8's rebate on propane and natural gas and the carbon tax. If we compare and contrast, of course, Bill C-8 provides a rebate on a carbon tax charge on propane and natural gas, whereas Bill S-234 provides an exemption.

Your job is to speak for your members. Could you convey whether or not your members would prefer a rebate? Depending on, as you said earlier, regional differences or differences in their agricultural practices, they might get anywhere from 30% back to maybe 100%, depending. Would they rather have an exemption where they get 100% of that back?
