Mr. Chisholm, members are free to bring up points of order. I will have to check the veracity of the point of order. I don't see any member bringing a point of order forward that talks about our process and the mandate of the committee as harassment.
My understanding is—and, Mr. McGuinty, this subcommittee's hands are tied. We have our mandate from the finance committee specifically saying what our mandate of research and report and our area of study should be. That is quite specific in the report that was used. It was tabled in the House of Commons. It was the second report of the finance committee, and it outlined in quite specific detail what our mandate is.
Generally speaking, I do allow very broad testimony from witnesses. So I would ask, out of respect for that mandate, Mr. McGuinty, that you keep your comments as focused as possible on the relevance of the national round table, if that's what you're here to talk about, and how it would apply to part 3 of the bill. I would very much appreciate you doing that.
Please continue, sir.
