I call the meeting to order. This meeting is called pursuant to the order of reference of Thursday, December 8, 2016, in regard to Bill S-4, an act to implement a convention and an arrangement for the avoidance of double taxation and the prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to taxes on income, and to amend an act in respect of a similar agreement.
With us we have Ms. Smith and Mr. McGowan, who we seem to see a fair bit of at this committee. Welcome, both of you.
If anybody has any questions on the bill generally, we can start with that or we can go to clause-by-clause consideration.
