In Quebec a few years ago, we had about $53 million in losses because of problems with the temporary foreign worker program. It was created for agriculture, and I think that we have to make sure we get it right for agriculture and that the program is not misused.
Mr. McCabe, I was wondering if you could comment on the dairy industry. Under the previous government, there was an announcement about compensation. I think it was $4.3 billion for the dairy industry and the other supply-managed industries. I was wondering if you could comment on how things are going in Ontario, the importance of honouring this compensation. I've asked them questions about it, because I was a little perplexed not to see anything in the last budget.
I think the government will be consulting and then maybe moving forward with another proposition. In Quebec a lot of our farmers are concerned about the TPP, milk proteins, and some issues in supply management. I was wondering if I could get you to comment a little more on these issues.
