I think the first answer is, yes, we do believe that the provisions of Bill C-49 will make a more balanced and competitive rail freight environment, but we have to remember the word “balanced” is important. We're not just saying that as a means to keep the peace. Our competitive position depends on the railways also being competitive and profitable. No one's here to punish them, but it hasn't been a balanced relationship up until now. We believe the provisions in this bill will create a more balanced relationship that will allow all of us to have commercial success and to grow our businesses in the future.
To your second question, of course, it depends, and unlike perhaps the agricultural community, with large volumes in a fairly tight geographic boundary, our industry is spread coast to coast and it really depends on the individual circumstances of individual producers in a very heterogenous sector. That said, there have been people who took good advantage of the earlier provisions and did quite well. They were pleased with it. That's one of the reasons why in the consultations as a sector we asked for something that was permanent, something that was available to all sectors, and something that truly provided relief for the opportunity for competitive commercial discussions between service providers on an ongoing permanent basis.
I hope that helps. Thank you.
