Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Welcome to our witnesses.
This is an awfully interesting debate. I think we need to let two principles guide us in our analysis. First of all, we need to comply with the judgment of the Supreme Court and, second of all, we need to be effective. We can't do any more than that. The previous government passed legislation that was the subject of a challenge, and the Supreme Court ruled on the matter, taking a specific view.
As I understand your explanations in response to Mr. MacKinnon's and Mr. Ste-Marie's questions on the subject, your version of the bill meets the requirements of the Supreme Court's judgment. Therefore, it complies with the decision delivered by the court two years ago. Do I understand that correctly?
