Mr. Chair, you ruled on this a week and a half ago. We had some discussion on this last night. We had ministers coming forward who talked about a wide, wide variety of issues, touching on the environment, touching on the economy. It certainly went far, far beyond the mandate of even the finance committee.
Surely Mr. McGuinty coming forward today to talk about something that is directly impacted in the budget and the budget bill is something this committee can listen to. He has ten minutes. I would just ask you to allow him to continue and to stop the points of order, which are simply trying to, I believe, intimidate witnesses.
