It has to be clear that we flagged that as an issue, as a very serious concern. We don't want to saddle homeowners with an unexpected cost for renovations when they may not have the resources to do them.
I do have another question. Going back to the principles of the legislation, Bill C-57, under “Principles”, says:
(f) the principle of openness and transparency, which is the principle that the release of information should be encouraged to support accountability and public engagement.
Now, that's obviously coming out of the government, coming out of the minister's office, a commitment to openness and transparency. I think you know that we've had tremendous frustration trying to get information out of your office about the economic impact assessments that have been done with respect to the national carbon tax. We received an almost fully redacted document, and what we would like to see is a full analysis of what the carbon tax will mean for the average Canadian.
We now understand that NRCan has also done a similar economic impact study on the forest industry. That also has not been released. The mandate letter to the minister says information like this should be open by default in order to achieve that new bar that the Prime Minister was going to set for openness and transparency.
Can you tell this committee now that you will release to us any economic impact analyses that have been done on the carbon tax?
