Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for her question and for her interest in the NAFO meeting in Toronto next week.
At this meeting all of the NAFO member states will consider the enforcement provisions contained within the Canada-EU enforcement agreement. It is our hope, indeed our desire, that the provisions contained in the agreement will be endorsed by members of NAFO.
I spoke as recently as yesterday to the ministers of fisheries from Norway and Iceland. My officials have spoken with representatives of other countries to ensure good strong support for these measures.
The current status of the agreement is that we have 100 per cent observer coverage working quite well offshore.
