Madam Speaker, I sat here and listened to the member opposite give his speech. Now I fully understand why out west the House in Ottawa is called the bull capital of Canada. There is no doubt about that.
The hon. member talked a lot about democracy. He mentioned democracy in his speech. To me democracy is the understanding that we have freedom of choice. Bill C-4 does not give us that freedom of choice.
I have a very specific question for the member. What assurance do the farmers on the prairies have that the people the government will appoint to these boards will have farming or marketing experience? What assurance is there in Bill C-4 of that?
