Thank you so much, Chair.
Welcome to our witnesses. Thank you for your testimony and helping us compile a report to deliver some recommendations to the federal government later this year.
I'd like to start with the Canadian Young Farmers' Forum.
Mr. Glenn, you mentioned in your opening remarks that nothing is more important to young farmers than having a stable suite of programs under business risk management. When we look at the demographics of those involved in farming and agriculture, we see that they tend to skew slightly to the older side. There will be a real need to have a lot of farmers step in and fill the gap when we start seeing large-scale retirement.
When young farmers are looking at the landscape and all of the risk that's present, are they really looking at the suite of business risk management programs? Is that a real item for them to look at in their consideration on whether they're going to make farming a profitable business venture? I'd like you to elaborate on that a bit.
