Thank you for that.
With respect to the reasons why there are no provisions in the bill with respect to resources, it's simply because we don't believe this is something that necessarily belongs in the bill. The minister did speak to that when he came. We are looking to this committee to provide advice on that, but the issue of resources is not an issue that normally you will find in a piece of legislation.
With respect to the interpretive clause, that is an issue we have given thought to. It's an issue that's been debated for a long time. I think everyone's views are well known on this.
As the minister indicated, we don't believe that an interpretive clause is required. We do believe that the provisions within the Constitution Act are sufficient, and I'm specifically referring to section 35, section 15, and section 25, which tries to make a link or find an equilibrium between the collective and individual rights.
