Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Welcome, Madame Benoit...for your trip to our committee.
To be frank, I guess Canadian taxpayers are frustrated. I think it would be fair to say there have been numerous allegations about mismanagement at the port and about lack of spending controls. So when we hear about duck confit for lunch and visits to Mont Tremblant, certainly people are wondering.
I'd like to ask about the idea of a South Seas cruise as part of fact finding. I've never heard that. Is that a common way to travel, in a South Seas ocean liner? I've never done that. I don't even think cabinet ministers do that.
Was that your idea?
