Mr. Speaker, the minority government continues to fail the farmers of Canada.
It has failed to provide immediate cash to farmers as promised. It has failed to hold the U.S. to account in terms of BSE. It has failed to implement a GATT article XXVIII dairy tariff line as mandated by the House. It has failed through its options program to address commodity price shortfalls and it has failed at the WTO.
Will the minister live up to his responsibilities and provide the needed cash assistance that farmers so dearly need?
