I call the meeting to order, this 17th meeting of the Standing Committee on Finance, as we continue our study of Bill C-9, an act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on March 4, 2010.
Colleagues, we are on part 24 of the overview, with officials. We hope to have about a 30-minute discussion with officials on part 24, and then move to the witnesses who are invited for today. That will depend on the number of questions we have from colleagues.
This part 24 deals with amendments to the Employment Insurance Act, to establish an account in the accounts of Canada to be known as the employment insurance operating account and to close the employment insurance account and remove it from the accounts of Canada.
We'll proceed as we have on other parts, with questions from members for five-minute rounds. We'll start with Mr. McKay.
