Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I will not repeat what my colleague just said, but I had the same reaction when I read that section. I wondered how the Standing Committee on Finance would be able to analyze this section and ensure that it is given the necessary attention given the nature of the proposed changes.
That being said, I would like to ask you what motivated this change. Was there a particular case that led you to propose such a change in order to deal with similar situations? Could the amendments that you are proposing today apply to a railway responsible for a derailment that destroys a downtown?
