I agree, obviously, with Mr. McKay that we need the delay. There were ten points put in a report issued to the House of Commons on the previous bill, Bill C-273, on things that needed to be fixed before we could move forward—ten items. And I'd like to hear not only from the mover, but also from those who are affected by this, and from the Department of Finance.
In looking at the two bills, I don't see how any of those things were addressed—none of the ten. And to say that we can quickly pass this through or turn it down doesn't give me, as a parliamentarian, the right to question the witnesses.
Now, I'm willing to deal with the witnesses who are here today or to proceed with talking with them today about this item, but with the understanding that we will have an extension and will go back to the asset-backed commercial paper, get that report done or get on with it, and then get back to this early in the fall.
Mr. Pacetti was a part of that committee. He voted against it the last time, based on the minutes from the meeting.
