Mr. Chair, what I find in this whole discussion is a lack of respect for the scientists we hire to work independently for the federal government.
There is support for other scientists outside who will come along, certain environmental or animal right organizations, to prove their point. I find that quite disturbing. The comment was that we need more scientists, and I think our farmers would agree with you on that. It's not because they don't know what they're doing. They want to make sure that farmers get access to products that are regulated and safe, so that they can decide whether to use them or not, because we're in a global competitive world.
With that, I am interested to know, Ms. Loftsgard, what do you tell people a GMO is?
