We do have to prioritize things, but I think we have a responsibility to not take over the transportation committee's responsibilities or the trade committee's responsibilities. These are two elements, the Emerson report and the trade deal, that have a profound effect on Canadian agriculture. If either of these go bad, agriculture in Canada is in real trouble. We must speak up on both of them. Having said that, we don't need to spend all of our time intervening in this. The trade committee will never do a comprehensive study on Canadian agriculture, and the effects of the TPP, because they've got to look at the deal in its comprehensive form. I think we have a responsibility, and it's important that we hear from the stakeholders. The trade committee would do well to probably follow some of the hearings we have with regard to the TPP and insert some of the testimony. I think it's important that people who think about agriculture, and have been given responsibility to defend agriculture, intervene in the discussions with regards to TPP, but we don't need to do as comprehensive a study as the trade committee. They have the paramount responsibility to make sure they do hearings.
On the CTA, or the response to the Emerson report, I appreciate the fact that this was brought up, because there are some provisions in here that, if they're lapsed, are going to create massive chaos in the transportation sector as it relates to grain transport specifically. I'm not going to presuppose what the outcome of our next meeting might be, but I think I'd put it on everyone's radar that I suspect what we should suggest. Let's hear what the testimony is. I think there should be a recommendation by this committee that if the full and comprehensive study of the CTA is not complete by the time the sunsetting provisions are put into place that there should simply be a response by the government to not allow anything to sunset until there's a replacement, or until the studies have been completed. I understand the government needs some time to look at the entire and comprehensive issues around the CTA, but as it relates to agriculture there are some provisions that expire this summer. Maybe we'll hear differently, but I think we should recommend there should be an inability for these things to sunset until the CTA hearings have been completed. I'm not sure there's a lot of work we need to do. After that, to give supplementary support to the transport minister, there may be things we need to intervene on, but I think as it stands now what we must do is ensure that nothing sunsets without the new comprehensive legislation being there to replace it.
