Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to ask some questions of Mr. Harvey.
To begin with, I'm glad to hear that the CGAs are positive on the economic statement. I did in fact read the release that was produced by the CGAs following the October 30 economic statement.
But I wanted to ask specifically about an issue you raised—and by the way, I agree that we do need a comprehensive study on the way we collect taxes in this country. I think that was the original goal of the finance committee. We did get a little bit sidetracked, and we talked about the dollar, but that really was what the committee wanted to talk about in its pre-budget....
We have a number of barriers to trade within Canada, domestic trade barriers. You mentioned that. I wonder if you might make some comments on the TILMA, the trade, investment, and labour mobility agreement between Alberta and B.C., and talk about how an agreement like that might benefit Canada as a whole.
