Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I tried to absorb all of that and form an opinion on the issue.
My colleague's motion very specifically focuses on the new rules proposed by the Minister of Finance, whereas the June 14, 2016, motion is broader and would allow for a much more detailed, uncircumscribed discussion on the mortgage regulations surrounding the Canadian real estate market. I would have liked to look at both to some degree and so I am ambivalent.
To help me, perhaps the clerk could give me some explanations about the February 2017 date. If the committee wishes to continue its work beyond that date, it will not really be bound by it, correct?
