Minister, you announced funding to help those in the cattle industry, in particular, maintain their herd stocks, especially given the backlog caused by the lack of processing. I've heard from groups in Alberta who are saying that they're going to have a rolling backlog, going into the future, of up to 375,000 head of cattle. It's going to collide with the upcoming calf season in the fall.
What is the department's long-term plan? Right now, that money seems to be holding things together for now, but what's the long-term plan to diversify our processing sector? Is your government in talks to make the changes to provincially regulated processing to allow processors to process animals across provincial borders? Is that going to be a long-term plan to help us diversify?
