Thank you.
I'd like to make a friendly suggestion that may encompass everything as a compromise, so that we can keep in the spirit of the amendment proposed by Mr. Perron, and it may also encompass NDP-2 and LIB-2, and that's just adding the word “will”. It would say “will or could”. I think that keeps in with the language that's already in the act, and it would also encompass everything that everybody is asking for here. It would provide that certainty for both, if that makes sense.

I would propose that we add “will or could” and then “result in the exposure of”.

“Could” is already there. I would propose “will or”, just adding “will or” in front of “could”.

I will move to drop the “will” and instead add “reasonably” so that it reads “could reasonably”.

Thank you.
Mr. Chair, I want to say thank you for doing such a great job. I got thinking about how this committee has been sitting non-stop, really, since January 2020. We didn't take a break through last summer when Parliament was in special committee. We've done some tremendous work on behalf of the agriculture sector, farmers and producers.
To you, thank you for being such a great chair. Should we not need that lottery ticket, it would be great to have you back in the fall. We wish you well in your retirement.
The Chair: Thank you.
Ms. Lianne Rood: You've just been fabulous to work with.
I want to say thank you to you for all the good things you've done, and thank you to the clerk, to all the support staff and to everyone on this team. I think we've done a lot for Canadians that we can be proud of, and we've been just a great team to work together across party lines. We haven't always agreed, but I think we've done pretty well for ourselves. This is a committee that people can look to for how we can work non-partisan across party lines for the greater good of Canadians and agriculture in Canada.
Thank you again, Mr. Chair. It's been a pleasure to work with you this term.
Thank you to my colleagues. I wish all of you a really great summer session break back in your constituencies.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I also had conversations with Mr. Blois and Mr. MacGregor. While I appreciate that we wanted to hear all of the witnesses, I had suggested a friendly amendment that we hear from a full panel of witnesses for one hour today and then move into clause-by-clause to ensure that we can finish this bill and report it back to the House before the end of this sitting session.
In the spirit of goodwill, we will accept Mr. Blois's motion to have the witnesses appear here today, so we can finish this fulsome study on the bill, but I would like to add that I was not appreciative of how this came about, and I think we could have worked together a bit better. We usually work together great. In the spirit of goodwill, we will support your motion, Mr. Blois, and then we'll move forward with the witnesses today.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to the witnesses for appearing here this afternoon.
Ms. Donnelly, last week we heard officials from Environment Canada say that farmers should only be given credit for practices that they have not already put in place, but I believe you said that early adopters of CO2 mitigation and capture should not be penalized.
To be clear, I'm wondering if you agree with Environment Canada officials that farmers should not be given credit for things they have already done or would have done.
Could you maybe comment on how a carbon credit market should be set up to give farmers financial incentives for capturing carbon in the soil?

I'll cede my time to Mr. Ruff.

Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to the witnesses appearing today.
Mr. Moffet, you were saying that when you set protocols, you consult with stakeholders. I'm wondering if that's with actual farmers. Do you go out onto the farm, and have you been on a farm to see what farmers do right now?

Was it consulting with farmers? I'm sorry to interrupt you. I just want to know, was it with farmers, or who did you mean by stakeholders?

The Western Canadian Wheat Growers have calculated that the agriculture sector captures 100 megatonnes of carbon dioxide from the grain farmers grow, which amounts to about 30 megatonnes more than what the national inventory reports as GHGs emitted by the agricultural sector. The Western Canadian Wheat Growers have argued that when grain leaves the farm gate, they are net zero for GHGs. I would argue that they are a net carbon sink for 33 megatonnes of greenhouse gases, according to their report.
Could you comment on the Western Canadian Wheat Growers' calculations and also on giving credit to grain growers and the agricultural sector for constituting a net carbon sink?
