TRQs are allocated to processors and retailers. The processors are linked to producers. Now, again, as you did with the environment, you're supporting the large retailers with an opportunity for a lot of money. Why are you standing by and allowing that to happen instead of standing up for the processors? Our producers will grow their industry only if we can grow the processors.

I am hoping that you have the authority over him around the table to support Canadian producers in supply management, so they can grow. Quite honestly, during the NAFTA, we gave it all away, without getting anything back in return. You protected a couple of things. Now we have this opportunity to give our producers some help.

It's going to take more than 15 seconds.

Oh. You heard me talk about the TRQs. Processors are getting 45% of them. Retailers are getting 55%, I think. What policy are you presenting to the minister to make that fair for our processors and producers? The suggestion is around 85%.

I don't have much time for that. I heard her.

I now want to move to transportation, quickly.
In terms of the transportation of livestock, there's 99.6% compliance. It's like the front-of-package labelling.
Mr. Komal, I was surprised to hear you say that that given that we are an exporting nation, we actually need to make sure, in terms of our transportation standards.... Yet we're going to put front-of-package labelling on many of our cuts of beef and pork, and on our dairy products. It seems to me that if we're going to be an exporting nation, we have a conflicting message here. To our consumers in Canada, we're saying, “Oh, be careful, this is not healthy. This is not good”. But we're going to send delegations around the world, through our free trade teams, saying, “Listen, we've got the safest food in the world. You should be buying it.”
Is that not a contradiction, in terms of policy, for the government?

Thank you very much.
Mr. de Bruyn and all of you, thank you so much.
I'm not sure the general public reads about it and actually has an understanding of the significance it would have to a very significant part of our economy in this country. When you were talking about the traceability, it would seem to me that establishing the zones and getting that established with our trading partners is critical. It is vital, along with the pig traceability. You have your zones and then the traceability of how everything moves. I know in the chicken industry the trucks don't go into the farms unless they go through some disinfectant first. I've seen them stop at the laneway, do whatever they do on the vehicle and then proceed into the farm.
In terms of the zoning you have with countries, did you actually get what you want? Second, is there a continuity with the trading partners that we have in terms of establishing those zones, not only within a province? John's within Ontario, as opposed to Manitoba or Quebec. Did we get what we wanted in the zoning, and is there a continuity with it with our trading partners?
I'm not sure who wants to take that.
John.

Mr. Pelletier, did you want to make a comment?

There are two things that I'm concerned about. One is the producers recognizing the significance or seriousness this has on an industry. Maybe you're a small producer. Maybe you don't have a next generation coming. I don't know. Particularly with the backyard, I don't have any of that. I don't know of much in southwestern Ontario, but certainly in parts of the country, we do. Why are the producers hesitating to produce the data that is needed in terms of the traceability? Is it because of complications, that they don't have the expertise or that they don't see it as necessary?
John, do you have any thoughts on it in terms of Ontario? We have all sizes of producers.
