Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Gentlemen, thank you very much for your presentations. I believe all of us here at the committee tip our hats to the great work you're doing to support individuals with learning more about finances and financial literacy and everything that goes along with that.

In relation to Bill C-28 and the financial literacy leader, we have some concerns with the bill.

Mr. Rabbior, you talked about the importance of leadership. Those are some of the things that we're talking about as well and some of the concerns we have. Of course, we supported the motion that was presented earlier by our chair in the House because we think the task force on financial literacy is making the right recommendations.

There were 30 recommendations. The first one was to appoint the financial literacy leader. The second one was the advisory council. The third one, and so on—all great recommendations. What we see here in Bill C-28 is only one, with no guidelines or framework as to what we should be looking at when it comes to creating a leader to support all of the great work that you're doing and the great work across the country.

Is that similar to some of the things you were saying about the importance of leadership, about making sure that there's just not an easy answer, and that you can seek out those answers from an advisory council?
