Mr. Chair, I believe I have the floor.
I will continue with what we are here to do, but I look forward to this committee's finally dealing with and moving on the Bombardier matter.
If I could, Mr. Bains, the last statement you made was that the committees are responsible for their own future, that they have their own independence. While I respect that, I would also remind you that at one point you were not invited to this committee, and it required your public intervention to be invited. Therefore, I would say that, based on that, there is evidence that your colleagues look for your cue, your leadership on the matter, since between a Friday and a Monday all members of the committee from your party decided to flip-flop the other way and invite you, based on your words publicly in the paper.
Therefore, Mr. Minister, if we were to conduct a study on Bombardier, would you ignore it?
