It was at the « Rendez-vous des Affaires » of the Fédération des Chambres de Commerce du Québec (FCCQ) that the President of La Coop fédérée spoke to about forty members of the FCCQ in Montreal about the realities behind supply management.
In his speech, Mr. Gervais gave a detailed picture of supply management, its positive and major impact on the Quebec and Canadian economy. He also explained in detail the consequences of its possible abolition on agriculture, the agri-food industry, employment and regions. Challenging supply management is more than the simplistic challenge of milk prices for consumers, it is a societal choice to ensure the sustainability of agriculture here and for future generations.
