We shall now begin our meeting.
I want to thank Mr. Lake, Madam Coady, and Monsieur Bouchard for proposing amendments to this bill. Thank you very much. I know how involved it is to come up with these amendments and have them translated, so I want to thank each of the three of you for doing this.
We are going to go clause by clause today on Bill C-4, and we're going to do it sequentially so that we're clear which clause we're working on. You have been given two sets of amendments. One set of amendments has been proposed by Liberal and Bloc Québécois members. It's the thinner set of papers you've been given. The second set you've been given is amendments proposed by the government, and it's the thicker set. The first half of that set is the amendments in English; the second half of the set is the amendments in French.
So without further ado, we'll begin with clause-by-clause consideration. We have joining us today three public servants from Industry Canada. We have Mr. Roger Charland, who is the senior director of corporate and insolvency law policy at the internal trade directorate. We have Mr. Wayne Lennon, the senior project leader, corporate and insolvency law policy at the internal trade directorate. We also have Madam Coleen Kirby, who is the manager of the policy section, Corporations Canada. They're here to assist us and to answer any questions you may have.
Perhaps you could introduce yourself. We have the legislative clerk with us today.
