I call to order this 59th meeting of the Standing Committee on Finance. We are being televised.
Pursuant to the order of reference of Monday, May 14, 2012, we're studying Bill C-38, an act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on March 29, 2012, and other measures.
We have a number of officials here today. I want to thank them for being with us.
Colleagues, as you know, we were discussing part 1 of the bill, and I had a speaking order I was following. Actually, Mr. Jean has two minutes left in his round, if he wants. Then I have Mr. Marston next.
Mr. Jean, you have two and a half minutes.
