Madam Speaker, the member opposite made some points with regard to the election of the directors. Ten would be elected by farmers and five by producers under Bill C-4.
The member is from Ontario. The Ontario wheat board is completely controlled by farmers. Why would he have a different standard in this regard? That is not my question. It is more of a question I asked previously.
He referred to an export licence. Has he ever seen that export licence? The export licence he is referring to, which the Canadian Wheat Board has the power to veto or whatever, has a blank on it. If you put three words in the blank you cannot export your grain. What are those three words? I am wondering if the hon. member knows. If you put Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba in the blank you have no control over their grain; you do not own it.
The member is from Ontario. If you put Ontario in that blank, there is not even a charge for it and away you go. You own the grain and you can export it.
What does the member think about the form he referred to? Does he think that export licence is a way to maintain equality in this country? Is that fair? How is he representing his constituents when he supports Bill C-4? I know that farmers on the prairies see this as a big government, Ottawa controlled wheat board.
