Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his comments.
I would like to know what he thinks of current programs such as AgriStability. I spoke about this earlier in my speech and I said that they do not work.
Do we know why only 31% of Canadian farms participate in the AgriStability program? The answer is that it is a shared jurisdiction in Quebec. We spoke earlier of the Constitution and jurisdictions, an issue that is sometimes pertinent. Quebec could have chosen to participate, but it preferred to create a program that complements the federal program, which does not work. Participation in the Quebec program is much higher than the rest of Canada's participation in the federal program, and this has boosted the average participation rate in the federal program to 31%. Imagine what would have happened if the Quebec government had not been there to implement those measures.
I would like to hear what my colleague has to say about that.
