Thank you, Chair.
Thank you, Superintendent, for joining us today. I have a question for you.
I'm not suggesting this is your fault, but you're here, so maybe you can help answer the question. It wasn't just Transparency International that criticized Canada; the OECD, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, of which we are a member, was also very critical. What they said last March was that Canada has only....
The treaty, I know, is recent, but we have an anti-bribery law that is 12 years old. The only company ever convicted of that was fined less than the amount of money it paid in bribes to a U.S. company.
I want to know what kind of message that sends to Canadian companies doing business abroad, particularly in countries where money is flowing overnight in the hotel lobbies, as Ms. Brown suggested, and where I suppose Canadian companies might feel disadvantaged if they don't engage in that practice.
Is that kind of history with these companies sending a bad message? How do we fix that? Is it all based on complaints, that if you don't get any complaints you can't do anything?
