Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):
Mr. Speaker, was the Minister of Agriculture telling the House of Commons the truth when he said on October 5 that there is a commitment by the United States "to consult with us prior to extending the Export Enhancement Program into our traditional markets"? I want to know whether the Americans made that commitment.
I want to know whether that agreement really means that the Americans cannot introduce any new Export Enhancement Programs or that they can use the existing program, triple or quadruple the budget, and take away Canadian markets?
October 23, 1987
What does that commitment mean, if anything at all, for the farmers of Canada?
