Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thanks, Minister, Chris and Christine, for being here. I appreciate your taking the time.
Minister, I'm glad you spoke about mental health and anxiety that is going on within the agriculture sector right now. A big part of that is some of the policy that has been put in place. That is also impacting the health of our rural communities and our rural economy.
I really want to stress this. You need to understand that especially in western Canada, when the energy sector is successful, agriculture is successful, because those rural communities are thriving.
I have to ask you. You didn't have the opportunity to answer today. Why were you lobbying against the Teck Frontier mine in rural Alberta?
