Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Welcome back to the committee, Minister Bibeau. Thank you for being here to talk about the supplementary estimates.
I want to talk to you a bit about the food policy for Canada. Last year, you said that the advisory council would be a “central piece” of this overall food policy because it would “bring together the expertise and diversity needed beyond government to address the challenges”.
I think the challenges are very great. I would like to know first of all why you have delayed putting together the advisory council, given that their expertise would be quite valuable at this time.
