Mr. Speaker, today thousands of farmers have come to Ottawa to call for action from the government. They need cash and they need it now.
The Prime Minister knows that the $755 million booked by the previous government was for last year. The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food has stated there will be no money this spring.
Will the minister and the government consent to having a debate tonight to explain to farmers here today why the government refuses to act and put cash on the table?
