That is what happened the first time. The person called first to get the State's services at no cost. He was discouraged and then turned to the private sector, because it was impossible to get into the State system as quickly. It is a real problem and it is good that you are making us aware of it.
Let me go back to what you mentioned earlier about the current negotiations. That is one of the things that is happening to people, whether they like it or not.
I will take advantage of the fact that you brought the matter up to submit a motion and to ask my colleagues to study it.
Mr. Chair, let me read the motion and you will see where I want to go with it.
That, pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food conduct a study on the consequences of the draft USMCA on Canadian farmers, particularly as related to:
1) producers under supply management,
2) any limitations placed on Canadian exports
3) any limitations placed on Canada’s ability to make independent regulatory decisions within the agricultural sector
in order to gather feedback from those who will be impacted by the USMCA, and its consequences on farmers' mental health; that this study be comprised of no less than four meetings to be held at the committee's earliest convenience; that the minister and departmental officials be in attendance for at least one meeting; that the government produce all studies, evaluations, analysis, and reports that touch on the matters of this study and that the findings of this study be included in the Committee’s report on mental health.
Mr. Chair, I am submitting this motion because we have a very specific situation at the moment and we can attempt to understand what is happening.
I have sent everyone a copy of the motion, May I talk about it a little?
