Madam Speaker, the hon. parliamentary secretary should read the Access to Information Act before he starts making reference to it in the House. He should know well that any commercially sensitive information for it matters not what department or organization is protected and privileged. If you put in an application for access to information and it has any immediate commercial aspect, you will get a bunch of blank papers or you will get papers with whiteout. I have had this experience many times, so the hon. parliamentary secretary should inform himself.
The other point I would like to raise with the parliamentary secretary is that with respect to this vaunted consultation and all this approval that farmers have for Bill C-4, I attended a Grain Days meeting, and I would inform him that people who attend Grain Days meetings are almost without exception strong supporters of the Canadian Wheat Board.
A motion was proposed at that meeting asking that the government withdraw Bill C-4 and it was passed unanimously. There is something here that does not compute. Incidentally, the instigator of the motion, he did not actually propose it, was our local representative to the advisory council. So do not tell me that the minister has the support of the producers or of wheat board supporters. He does not.
