Absolutely, labour is a much bigger problem this year. In years past we also were challenged by labour shortages, and more often than not they were filled through the use of temporary foreign workers. This year, although the Canadian government has done a good job at helping us to get them here, not all of the temporary foreign workers are arriving. Some farms are at as low as 50%, or even fewer workers. I am currently missing five workers out of 30. This is a big strain. It should be covered by whatever program. This year's big exposure is labour.
