Madam Speaker, I appreciate my colleague's question. First of all, it is obvious that he has quite considerable knowledge in this area. While listening to him, I found a considerable number of his comments very worthwhile. I would like to answer him as follows.
It is rather interesting because my colleague obviously demonstrates a significant knowledge of that sector, but at the same time he falls into a trap, which is the suggestion that by comparing gross rates in certain sectors in other countries with respect to the same commodity that all of a sudden it is the fault of the Canadian grain commission. It just does not follow.
One of the reasons why we wanted to do this, as I stated before, is because the producers wanted to control, decide and carve out that vision. They wanted to develop new instruments so that they could be creative and increase their sales. However, I do not accept the basic supposition that the statistics that were shared are a result of the Canadian grain commission. It simply does not follow and I think my colleague, upon reflection, will agree that is a correct statement.
