Good morning, everyone. Welcome, you early risers.
Before we get into our pre-study here, I have a bit of a request. Colleagues, as you know, we're pretty close with the British and their trade committee, or their new-found trade committee, with what they're going through with Brexit and what they're trying to develop and what they're getting into with their own committee. They're very close to us and they visit us. They have reached out to me and they want to talk a little more, through a video conference, maybe. It will be very hard for us to do this in the next couple of days, with the time zones, but we can, if you want me to reach out to them.
Anybody from the committee is welcome to be in on that video conference, but maybe it should just be me and the vice-chairs, or whoever wants to be in. I'm going to try to pick a time within the next two days, and if it's good for you we'll do a video conference with them. They know our situation, that Parliament is winding down and they know the time difference. They just want to have a chat with us. I was thinking we could do that for a half hour. I think they want to get a feel on how our committee runs and what we're doing with our trade agreements.
Maybe the clerk could explain it a bit.

To me it's more of reaching out to them. They may want to talk to the next Parliament, or whatever, but I think it's kind of saying okay.... I'm suggesting we just have a half-hour video conference at a time that would be good for them because there is a four-hour difference. Are you okay with my just reaching out? If anybody can make it, then we'll set something up and we'll just do a half hour and see what they want to say and we'll wish them well, that kind of thing.
Some hon. members: Agreed.
The Chair: Maybe we could do it on Thursday morning or something, just for a half hour. Looking at their time, we could do something like 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, which would be 2:30 p.m. in England. We'll give them an opening and if it works, it works, and whoever wants can chime in. We'll go to a meeting room somewhere, and away we go.
Sorry for the delay. We have a big morning ahead of us, colleagues.
We are going to divide this up into three segments to try to do an hour and 15 minutes with each segment with a little break in between to get people switched over. For anybody who is listening out there, besides the witnesses who are coming forth today, anyone else, Canadians and stakeholders, can send in a brief with a maximum of 2,500 words. It should come to the clerk of the committee. The information is available on the committee's website.
Without further ado, welcome, witnesses. Many of you have been here before. As you know, our topic is Bill C-100, a new NAFTA, I guess you would call it. Usually five minutes per witness is fine. If it goes over or under, that's fine too. We're not being too strict today. Then we'll just open it up for dialogue with the MPs.
First is the Business Council of Canada. We have Mr. Kingston. Go ahead, sir.

Thank you, sir.
We're going over to the egg producers.
I have to confess, my first job was picking eggs. Then I got promoted to sweeping floors, then to candling eggs and then to debeaking. Maybe that's what I'll go back to in a year's time.

Thank you, egg producers, for coming on such short notice. You have all the time you want here this morning, so go ahead.

Thank you, sir.
Let's get cracking. Let's have dialogue with the MPs here this morning.
It looks like we have time for two rounds. If everybody keeps within their five minutes, we should be able to do this. Keep your questions short, and maybe the witnesses can keep their answers half-short so that everybody can get some good dialogue back and forth.
Without further ado, we're starting off with the Conservatives. Mr. Allison, you have the floor for five minutes.

We will go to Mr. Drouin. He's the member for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell.
Welcome to our committee. I had the honour to go to your riding. This is where dairy farmers have happy cows.

There was a back-scratcher on one of his dairy farms where the cows would go in and get their backs scratched.
We went to an egg farm. It was very modern with bigger pens for the chickens.
You have quite the riding there, sir.
