I've done an entire book on the Canadian Constitution and issues arising from it. I'm also a scholar of federalism and an associate of the best-known institute in the country that deals with issues of federalism and intergovernmental relations.
All that is to say that I speak with some background on this about concerns about, on the one hand, implicit downloading by federal governments, not just in Canada but elsewhere, at the expense of other jurisdictions that share in the sovereignty of Canada and the consequences incurred for those jurisdictions, which also, let's remember, have a very different capacity to deal with it. A province like P.E.I. has a very different capacity to deal with an increase in cases than a province such as Quebec or Ontario has.
I'm happy to try to come back to the committee and see what research I can dig up on the actual costing. If I were a provincial premier, I would not want to have any of this without adequate compensation and the costing from the federal government of the additional overall costs incurred by these measures.
