This is a gesture of goodwill, not only to the thousands of farmers – and quite honestly, in all the protests that I’ve seen, I’ve never seen anything as big as this one in my time in government or on this side of the House. I’ve never seen the passion and the tears, and I can tell you, coming from a farming community, my father’s farming community – I grew up in the city – that, man, they are super angry. They are super angry. I have never heard my dad that angry on the phone in a long time. He’s a quiet, reasonable guy. He is a patient man. He was a small-business owner for over 40 years. You know, if I was half of the man that he is, well, maybe I’d be the Premier. I don’t know. He’s just wise, and when he gets mad, then I know there’s a problem, and I knew it when I was a kid. The thing is that that could be easily resolved by making some good gestures moving forward, and this is one simple piece: go in; review it after a while.
