For our approach on crop protection products, we actually feel that the Canadian agency is one of the toughest agencies in the world. I could cite examples. Comparisons to other agencies and the approach they take is an important thing to look at. We need to understand the reasons that a product might not be approved for use. Perhaps it's a different environment.
In discussions with Europeans most recently on environmental issues, we were looking at greenhouse gas emissions. One of the key differences between a European study and a western Canadian one is our soils are frozen for three or four months of the year, and theirs aren't.
There can be environmental differences that might be the reason a product might be registered in one jurisdiction and not another. There are also things like cumulative risks from a human health perspective. I can't really comment on that difference.
One thing I would note is that Canadian regulations are two and a half times tougher than the European ones. We have a good system. We stand behind the system. We believe it represents pulses and other crops we grow in Canada as being safe around the world.
