I have another question. Mrs. Denham, you said earlier that you did not make any comparison with legislation in other countries. Do you not think you could have saved some money, had you check what was done and was working fine in other countries? We should not try to reinvent the wheel. You did not have consultations with the many countries which passed similar legislation several years ago. You said Canada is the only G7 country without such a legislation. The six other countries have one. Comparisons can be made with more than one country. Checking what is working or not in other countries is a good way to save money, is it not? You would like this legislation passed, but we have no benchmark to be able to tell what is working or not abroad. Would it not be a good idea to check what is working in other countries before we pass a somewhat defective bill that does not work well and with which we could hit a wall?
