Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a supplementary. In allotting the quotas, a certain percentage was set for Ontario, another for Quebec and so on for the
other parts of the country. In this regard, does the minister know that the Ontario company, Maple Lodge, has flooded the Quebec poultry market with part of the quota allotted to Ontario, so much so that it could lead to the withdrawal of Quebec from the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency? In addition, could the minister take steps to protect Quebec producers who are on the brink of bankruptcy, which will result in financial difficulties for Quebec slaughterhouses?
