Once again, welcome to the witnesses. I always enjoy discussing the Bank Act with you.
I have just one question, provided your answer doesn't give rise to another. You said, and rightfully so, that you weren't a lawyer but that you could speak to policy issues.
I'd like to know whether the Department of Justice was consulted and whether it issued an opinion on the constitutionality of this bill with due regard to the division of powers.
If so, I realize that you can't tell me what that opinion was. At the very least, though, I'd like to know whether an opinion was provided.
