I want to again just highlight that getting through these witnesses within two meetings is absolutely possible. We have six witnesses listed here. I think, with a one-hour block for each, we should be able to get through all of them.
I understand the importance of this motion. I also understand the importance of ensuring that we're spending our time as efficiently as possible. I think having two meetings is a very efficient way for us to get through this issue and to move on to other important issues that are also on our docket, Chair.
Again, I am just saying to members opposite that we would like—and I think it's reasonable for me to suggest—to do this study within two meetings. I will also highlight that had members of the opposition consulted with us and we'd had this conversation rather than being called in on a 106(4), we could have used this as one of the meetings to be more efficient, instead of having the opposition trying to find “gotcha” moments, which makes no sense to me at all. We're at the table. We're trying to play ball. It would be nice to have those discussions.
Again, just looking for efficient use of our time, I think that two meetings would be quite sufficient.
