Thank you very much, Chair. No, that's fine.

Shifting gears again, I've made a number of references, both domestic and international, to ways that by comparison make the government look pretty bad. It makes Canada look bad, but it's the government of the day, the Conservatives.

Our motion has specifically called for travel. You have been very clear that I can't use repetitive arguments that I've used before. Although you did allow me to give those examples, you're drawing the line at my going back and using those examples again because of repetitiveness. With much reluctance I accept that is the rule. However, I would like to add to the body of evidence that I've already presented by also giving new examples, new to this debate from the time I have had the floor.

The first example I'd like to give is the second sitting of the 36th Parliament. Aboriginal Affairs did a study of Bill C-9. They had 10 meetings from November 15, 1999, to November 19, 1999. They must have been working hard, ten meetings in four days. That's pretty good.

But my point is that they travelled to five cities: Terrace, Smithers, Prince George, Victoria, and Vancouver.
