Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
Thank you to all our witnesses for attending committee today.
Mr. Meyer, I'd like to begin with you. Actually, I'd like to ask both presenters some questions, but I'd like to begin with you.
Our Prime Minister is just coming back from an impromptu failed trade expedition to China, and in some of your comments you referred to the Chinese competition that you're experiencing as a secondary manufacturer of wood products in the millworking business.
You've talked about the increased costs that you're incurring when it comes to salary and electricity. Have you considered at all what kind of impact furthering our trade with China would have on businesses like yours? We know right now there's about $90 billion a year of trade between our two countries, two-thirds of which is coming from China into Canada, and only one-third being reciprocated back to China. How do you think that would impact your business?
