Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you, Mr. President, and the witnesses.
I'm just following up on Mr. Casey's comment about not only focusing on our expenses, but also our revenue sources. I just met with tourism officials this week and talked about the United States. Their visa centres are actually revenue centres. They're taking $200 million and starting a national travel or tourism initiative. We're very concerned about that from an economic and competitive perspective. We have to look at other ways of raising revenue as well, so I'll put that out there.
I just wanted to clarify the numbers. It was indicated that we spent $266 billion last year and that it will be about $259 billion this year. So there was about a $7 billion reduction in overall expenditures. Is that correct?
