Sure. I'll leave the money side of it out, and we'll get back to Mr. Easter on that.
I guess the biggest thing I would point to is the consultative process we've embarked on, as late as Monday morning, with industry on regulations and how we get on top of that. I have a copy of that regulatory report that the CFIA worked up. I'd be happy to leave that with the committee.
We've consulted with producers. We didn't do like Mr. Easter did and hop from airport to airport and have meetings right there. We actually get out to the farm gates and have round tables. We have spoken with hundreds of farmers within their environment and listened to them and constructed our products accordingly.
On the question of the cap, I've been very public about saying let's raise the cap in this environment we're in. We've done some number crunching. I'll be having meetings with the provinces coming up within the next 10 days or two weeks on that particular issue. I myself would like to see the caps raised. We've pushed the numbers. We've worked with the $3 million cap model, which is double. We've also worked with a $5 million cap, and of course some of the industry are saying no cap at all, which is not on. That just isn't going to happen, so I'm that honest with them.
The member from Malpeque also said that we should readjust the reference margins as though BSE never happened. There are farmers out there who would ask me to readjust the reference margins as though the Liberal government never happened.
