Mr. Speaker, it is clear to me that the member does not understand the challenges facing farmers.
Our government was elected by farmers on a platform to modernize the grain sector in Canada and to keep our economy strong. We have brought in marketing freedom. The next step is to renew the Grain Commission, something that has not been done in 40 years. These changes would eliminate about $20 million in unnecessary costs in the grain handling system, costs that are ultimately borne by the farmers.
The member must stand up for farmers.
