It's okay. I know that Gerald would have been ready to go, too.
Thanks, witnesses, for your testimony. It highlighted a lot of the concerns that we have tried to bring forward. Many of the programs currently being offered by the government are not accessible by agriculture, for a variety of reasons. It's a unique business structure and has a unique financial position.
Mary, I'll start with you. I appreciated the comments you had after the agriculture minister made her announcement of some of the assistance packages brought forward earlier this week, which fall woefully short of the $2.6 billion you asked for. Your comment on that was that it was like offering a bucket of water for a burning house. Why are these programs insufficient to meet the needs of agriculture? Why that comment?
