Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My thanks to the witnesses for joining us today.
I feel that everyone is happy to be able to access those markets. That said, Canadian producers are very concerned about animal welfare. They are developing new production techniques and they have environmental standards that differ from one province to the next.
Our standards, which are higher in Canada than in other TPP countries, may provide us with an advantage in bringing products to market, but they can also be an obstacle in terms of the price of the products. When you compare our standards to those in other countries, do you have an idea of how we are going to position ourselves as producers in the markets you represent?
