Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
There was some terminology that was used today that really hurt me, not because I have a dish or anything like that, or because I'm receiving illegal signals, but such terms as theft, piracy, fraud, and so on hurt me because it's hurting my constituents.
I happen to live in a part of Canada that is growing more and more organically produced crops. The only way they can get a market update is from the U.S. So you go around in my constituency and you will see that there are two things that this signal is there for. One is because it's their livelihood. Secondly, there is the weather. I myself have a $10 radio on top of the fridge that I'll tune into an FM station, which comes from about 45 to 50 miles away, and I'll get a modern update on the weather that is much more accurate than what comes out of Winnipeg.
Don't forget, there's a reason. For these people it's their livelihood. It's their bread and butter. This is not provided for them in Canada. That's the reason, Mr. Chairman, I am hurt. These people are not pirates, they're not thieves or anything else; they're outstanding Canadian citizens. They're trying to make a living.
I was really hurt by those terms. I just wanted to make that comment.
