I'm going to get to you and your soybeans, and Claire, in a minute.
With livestock, the objective is to market 100% of every animal. Take a visual of an animal and just think about the parts you put in your fridge and on your stove at home. The objective is that 100% of that animal is marketed. The products we don't use in Canada we add value to by opening these markets up. That's in all of our livestock.
We continue to hear a lot about trade deficits and trade surpluses. Don't be afraid of trade deficits. Trade is trade. You create jobs by having products come into your country as well as products going out of the country. It creates jobs. There's distribution, transportation, processing—all those things. When we have a deficit, it means that our society is fairly strong and that we have the ability to bring in products that we don't grow, manufacture, or process here. We've been fortunate in this respect for some while. It's also an indication of a strong economy.
I want to touch on low-level presence. I want to go back to that. Regardless of what the commodity is, whether it's biotech, wheat, or other crops, it can create havoc. I'm wondering if you could comment on Canada's ability to have a high standard, to make sure, through technology, that we don't have a low-level presence that is unacceptable to other countries. In the case of our soybean growers, people from Japan come over and track it. They come to the farms. The elevators on our farms are actually setting up GMO crusher beans and looking at IP. But it doesn't stop there. The truck they use may have previously hauled GMO.
Is it recognized around the world that Canada is doing a good job in this area? If not, we'll have an issue in some of our trade.
