I think at the time of their introduction as part of the cuts in 2013, the reference margin limit was introduced to address some of what John had referenced earlier about paying into profitability, this notion that the margins had got to a point where a proxy was needed to see whether the program was paying farmers in profit or responding to loss, and so this was introduced. At the time, we raised concerns about the mechanism used.
To date, our position has very much been that we are willing to look at how we can ensure that the program doesn't pay farmers who are in profitable situations. We think that's a meaningful intent, certainly, but the mechanism itself is a very rough proxy. I could get into the mechanics of it, but it's a pretty deep dive. We have seen a model out of Quebec that uses a net income test that we think warrants some further consideration as an alternative to that.
While we do advocate for the removal of the reference margin limit, we're certainly open to the concept of ensuring that a program doesn't pay farmers in profitable situations.
