Mr. Speaker, I would like to begin by thanking the people of Abitibi—Témiscamingue for putting their trust in me.
As a member from an agricultural region, I was pleased, and relieved even, that the government committed to fully compensating supply-managed farmers in today's throne speech. I wish to commend the affirmation that some dairy farmers will receive their first cheques before the end of this month, especially since the Bloc Québécois worked so hard to resolve this issue. Having worked closely with the Fédération régionale de l'UPA d'Abitibi-Témiscamingue, I know that what our farmers want, even more than compensation, is for there to be no more breaches in supply management in our trade agreements.
Will the government commit to putting a stop to such breaches in supply management in all trade agreements going forward?
