Absolutely. We heard last time at this committee that the Minister of Agriculture can't actually contemplate the advance payments program until the APP administrator puts the request forward. We look forward to seeing the minister able to make a request on the merits of the application.
I want to turn to Mr. van den Heuvel.
It's great to see a fellow Nova Scotian here in the room. Certainly in my riding of Kings—Hants we know about the importance of agriculture.
You talked about the fact that we don't necessarily want to go back to the program of 10 years ago. You said what worked 10 years ago does not necessarily work now. We've heard a lot about going back to the 85%, after it was cut under the Harper government in 2013. What, beyond that...? There are some provinces that have an 85% reference margin. Quebec has one now. British Columbia has 80%. It hasn't really resulted in a major uptick.
Can you speak to that? Again, obviously, it would be important to get it back to 85%. We know that; we've heard it. But what about the fact that there hasn't been an uptick in other provinces that have done the exact measures that are being recommended by some of our witnesses?
