Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you all for joining us today and giving us your testimony. The committee sincerely appreciates it.
Clearly, a market of 800 million people is extremely attractive for producers and processors. Those 12 countries are major ones. However, I am particularly interested in our 35 million consumers here in Canada. In fact, I want to put myself in the shoes of the consumers who have to shop for groceries every week.
Can you tell us what the benefits of joining the TPP are for them; if we join, of course?
