You mentioned the free trade agreements. In fact, the CPTPP is in force, but there are no imports related to our products yet. The new agreement with the United States will come into effect on July 1. It is important that the tariff rate quotas that will be granted under these agreements be given to processors, because they are the ones who will have to deal with the arrival of these products on the market.
In the egg sector, for example, the agreement with the United States specifies that the quotas must be mainly for eggs that have to be broken, i.e. those intended for the processing market. Because these are eggs that are going to come into Canada and are going to be distributed to the processing market, if they don't go to the processors and they go to other players in the market, we risk losing a very large part of the egg processing sector in Canada. It would face unfair competition because other enterprises would have access to imported eggs at lower costs, while we would continue to buy from producers like those represented by Mr. Bouchard.
This example concerns the egg sector, but it is the same kind of problem in the chicken and turkey sector.
