I call this meeting to order.
Thank you for being here, everyone.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108, the study of debt in agriculture sector and its effects, I want to welcome the panel we have with us here today.
Although it will be a shorter committee meeting than usual, because of a vote, we will allow each of you a 10-minute presentation and then we will probably shorten our question period.
I would like to welcome Michèle Lalancette, who is the president of the Fédération de la relève agricole du Québec. We also have with us, from the same federation, Philippe Pagé, the interregional coordinator.
From the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council we have the executive director, Portia MacDonald-Dewhirst, and the chair, Mr. Mark Wales.
From the Canadian Cattlemen's Association we have Brady Stadnicki, policy analyst.
From the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association we have Ryan Beierbach, the chairman.
Welcome to all of you.
We will start with the Fédération de la relève agricole du Québec.
Ms. Lalancette, you have up to 10 minutes in which to make your presentation.
