Thank you so much for your presentations.
Crown Royal is bottled in my riding in Amherstburg, Ontario, and of course Wiser's and Lot 40 are right next door and Hiram Walker is in Windsor. We're certainly watching the geographical indicators around Canadian whisky closely to ensure there's that carve-out.
My questions are going to centre around the other guests here today. I really want to talk about this gender chapter.
I've heard you say that at a bare minimum it needs to be a trilateral committee, much like we saw in Chile, but I really want to talk about what the best possible scenario could be. There are things to be included, of course, such as pay equity, social supports for women, access to shelters, and domestic violence legislation, because when women entrepreneurs have the choices and the stability in their lives to be able to grow, I think it benefits all women across Canada. I'm hoping that those things are in there, but I want to ask you about access to capital.
You mentioned how limited capital is for women, as is the access to decision-makers. These are the real barriers that exist in our own country as well as when women are trying to trade. Beyond that committee, how can we entrench these into enforceable language in NAFTA? How do you view that?
