Mr. Chair, if I may, I will read the following motion, which I will move next week:
That the Committee invite the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-food and the Minister of Finance to provide a briefing on the government's consultations titled “Tax Planning Using Private Corporations” and how this will impact family farms and the Canadian agriculture and agri-food economy.
I want to thank the witnesses for being here.
Your comments are very insightful. I myself am from a rural area, a large riding that is part of the Quebec City region, Beauport—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île d'Orléans—Charlevoix.
As my colleagues told you earlier, a number of farmers were wondering this summer about the new Canada's Food Guide and the new liberal tax that will affect farmers. More and more farmers are concerned. I don't know whether people have also talked to you about it, but we have been receiving hundreds of letters weekly about this issue. As my colleagues have discussed this at length, I will put another question to you.
Canada currently has a agricultural policy framework that supports the country's entire agriculture and agri-food system. What difference do you see between the next agricultural policy framework and the government's upcoming food policy?
You can all answer.
