Mr. Speaker, there has been more consultation on this than any income program in the 40 years that I have been involved in the agriculture industry.
Provinces can continue with whatever programs they want. We are saying that in the province of Quebec for example, the province to which the hon. member is referring, out of the $1.60 to go with the 60¢ federal money that goes in there, the federal government is asking it to make some modest changes for 24¢ of that.
The other money they can use in whatever way they want, continue the programs they have and even do more if the province so desires.
