It is relevant, Mr. Chair, because remember that this payment or this backfill arrangement is extending this agreement to 2023. I believe 2023 is assumed to be the end, because the Sable Energy Offshore Project has expired.

I have a second question. With regard to Bill C-20, why are we duplicating legislation? Bill C-20 specifically addresses this, and now is it being superseded by the BIA. We saw this happen, I believe, with Bill C-25 as well. We have these different pieces of legislation, and then the BIA comes along and basically supersedes them. Is that correct?
