Now we have theft.
Thank you, Ms. Duncan. I appreciate your point of order. I understand what motivated you to make that point of order.
It's my understanding that the environmental approval process for something like a pipeline that is going to transport oil from an origin source all the way through would involve various aspects. My understanding is that part of that approval process would be that nobody would build a pipeline to a coast if shipping wasn't part of the entire approval process. I would imagine there would be some salient points of this. The question is whether or not it's in the scope of part 3 of the particular legislation, which is what our mandate is.
Mr. Anderson has cited several passages in part 3 of the bill that do pertain, in a broader context, to shipping. I think out of interest and respect for the witness who is already here, I'm going to allow his presentation to continue. However, I will be very focused. I would ask that we focus on those relevant and salient points pertaining to the mandate the subcommittee has.
Thank you very much, colleagues, for your points of order. It was much appreciated and very helpful to the chair.
Please continue, Mr. Obermeyer.
