Thank you. Today the discussion is about our future topics of discussion. The clerk has just given us the first report on the tentative schedule. I suggest that we look at it together and discuss which priorities to highlight. We have to begin by deciding what we are going to talk about and how many meetings to dedicate to each topic.
Larry mentioned the availability of witnesses. Let me point out that, if we begin by reviewing programs, obviously we will want to ask a lot of public servants to appear—people who are readily available. That is a suggestion. We would not have too much trouble getting started on our work if we began with that question.
I would like to talk about another point. With the steering committee, I came back to product of Canada labelling, and I think I raised the issue with the main committee. A rule was amended and lots of people reacted to this rule of 98%. I felt it was of utmost importance for the committee to hold sessions on this issue, if only one or two. This file has to be discussed again, even if the committee did some excellent work in this connection. I do not want us to start over from the beginning on this file. However, the amendment of this rule to come up with 98% has consequences for both producers and processors. I have received information not only from Quebec but from everywhere concerning this decision.
So the committee should take a look at this question, which is not on the tentative schedule. I would have liked to see it there. As far as I am concerned, I intend to discuss it and let the committee know that I plan to come back to this subject.
