Well, I didn't say that.
Again, Mr. Commissioner, thank you so much for coming. You are a regular and we appreciate your input.
I thought I would start by sharing a story of what I went through not too long ago while crossing the border. My riding is Saint John-Rothesay, and I'm an hour from the Calais border. We went across, and we were asked to pull in. We went inside to talk with the customs agents, and I was to accompany the agents back to the car. We were told to put all of our phones in the car and open the phones up. Then I left. We sat inside for a better part of 30 to 45 minutes. It was me, a friend, my son, and one other person, and we waited. Eventually, they came back and said we were all good. We went back to the car, and the phones were clearly not in the same places as they had been.
Like Mr. Cullen said, obviously it's cause for concern when you cross that border. Respecting that, as you say, they don't have to give you entry into the United States. But I guess, from a Canadian's viewpoint—and, again, I apologize, it's the same line of questioning as Mr. Cullen.
How concerned should Canadians be? As Mr. Cullen said, we cross now with our iPads, laptops, and phones, and in my phone is my banking information and my emails. It's not just text and pictures anymore. It's basically your life history and all your records. On a scale of one to 10, as Canadians, how concerned should we be?
