This is from the published bill. The Library of Parliament often publishes better independent summaries.

This enactment amends the Payments in Lieu of Taxes Act in order to provide that, in the event of a disagreement about the property value or effective rate applicable to the federal property that is a national historic site, an assessment of the property value and effective rate applicable to that property may be conducted by a third party.

Mr. Speaker, my colleague from Drummond raises an excellent point. Let us go through the examples.

We can look at the clear recommendation that was made by the committee on electoral reform. We can look at the clear recommendation that was made by the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights on Bill C-201. We can look at the clear recommendations that were made by the public safety committee with respect to Bill C-22. In each one of those instances, the committee did its due diligence, listened to the experts, and presented its recommendations to the House, only to have the government completely ignore the evidence and recommendations and proceed along a predetermined path.

Therefore, my friend raises a valid concern. In every instance, the Liberals tell us to trust in the committee process. I have trust in it, but I have no trust in the government following the recommendations and hard work that those committees do on behalf of the House.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am going to call this meeting of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights to order as we continue our study of Bill S-201, an act to prohibit and prevent genetic discrimination.

I would like to welcome our witnesses for today. We are joined by the Canadian Medical Association, represented by Dr. Cindy Forbes, who is the past president, and Cécile Bensimon, who is the director of ethics.

Welcome, ladies.

We're also joined by the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists. Dr. Gail Graham, the past president, is joining us.

Thank you very much for being here.

We've agreed that you will begin, Dr. Forbes.

Matthew Dubé NDP Beloeil—Chambly, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-201, An Act to amend the Payments in Lieu of Taxes Act (independent assessment).

Mr. Speaker, I do not want to spend too much time on this, since we have a vote coming up. However, I made an election commitment to reintroduce this bill at the first opportunity in order to ensure that the City of Chambly gets its fair share of payments in lieu of taxes.

I would also like to quickly thank the former MP for Halifax, Megan Leslie, who worked so hard on this issue and who seconded my bill in the last Parliament. Thanks to her good work, if we get the bill adopted Halifax will have a lot more money in its coffers and will get its fair share from the federal government as well.

I am looking forward to getting support, as the Liberal candidate in my riding promised in the last election.
