moved for leave to introduce Bill C-510, an act to provide cost of production protection for the family farm.
Mr. Speaker, by means of a very short introduction, this is a bill to provide to the agricultural producers of our country income that is reflected in their cost of production. It is to be calculated on a three year basis. It covers most commodities in the country. It is something that farmers have been calling for, for a long time. It ties the cost production formula into what income they get when they sell their commodities, be it grain in the fall or livestock at certain times of the year.
