Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, Professor Bunn. Thank you, Mr. Barber and all the officers, for very insightful presentations. It's really important for us to hear your expertise. Thank you very much for that.
My question is for Mr. Barber, and it has to do with the bill's extraterritorial aspect.
Clause 3 of Bill S-9 talks about extraterritorial jurisdiction that could apply in the case of certain actions.
The following offences are not covered: an offence committed abroad against a Canadian citizen; an offence committed against a state or a government facility of that state abroad, including an embassy or diplomatic or consular premises; an offence committed abroad by a permanent resident or a stateless person who habitually resides in that state. Can you explain to us why that is and tell us what consequences it could have?
