Thank you.
I listened carefully to your presentation. However, if I speak specifically about my region, I can say that the serious crises in the softwood lumber sector have led to an abnormally high rate of people losing their jobs. As you pointed out earlier, this is a difficult situation. In fact, these people have spent their lives in the forest, are of a certain age, are on the verge of retirement, are used to a certain lifestyle and, from one day to the next, have to find a new job. These transitional measures must be implemented. In this regard, I agree with what you said. Unlike my Conservative friends, I have no objection to this being applied to sectors other than wood. I will tell you why.
I have difficulty seeing how this program—which we were talking about earlier and whose acronym in French is PABO, a joke that works in French, but perhaps not in English—offers essential support to people who lose their jobs. In concrete terms, how can it support the forestry industry?
I may have missed something. Can you enlighten me on that?
