Hon. Michael Wilson (Minister of Industry, Science and Technology and Minister for International Trade):
Madam Speaker, let me point something out to my hon. friend before he throws all sorts of doom and gloom on this whole picture.
Canada has won five of the panel decisions on agrifood issues. In that regard I think my hon. friend would rightly agree with me that the panel system has served the agricultural sector extremely well in this country.
My hon. friend has asked whether there are some changes that should be made. If he has some proposals lo make in that regard, we would be very happy to listen to them, but they obviously have to be consistent with international trade rules.
