Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I certainly welcome the witnesses, who, I might add, are very informed.
You indicated, Mr. Boudreault, that some of the programs were only funded by 50%. I think, of course, this is why the Liberal Party and I, if you check correctly, were so insistent that we have this study and to make sure that people like you were able to present to the committee the problems that you face in your province.
I understand it quite well, but I'd like you to do some explaining to the committee about what problems this creates, because there are areas that cannot come up, no matter if you're talking about fish enhancement development programs or whatever. If there's a 50% requirement on smaller areas and smaller groups, it just means that they're not able to participate in programs.
I'd like you to expand on that so that the government would fully understand how important it is that they fund these things properly.
