Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
I would like to thank the three witnesses for being here today.
It is interesting to hear Statistics Canada's response to the concerns raised by all the witnesses we have heard during our meetings.
Mr. Corbeil, you have met with us before and I recall our conversation. We discussed the limited number of questions that could be in the census. We cannot add questions to the census at will. If we change the census questionnaire by adding questions about rights holders, they could take the place of supplementary questions about other sectors of activity and even about the francophonie.
Without knowing the results of your upcoming consultations in advance, as Ms. Denis indicated, can you tell us whether we will be able to add questions to the census?
Ms. Denis, you said you do not know whether the consultation will be positive or negative, but I am quite confident that it will be positive. I would be very surprised if that were not the case, based on what we have heard during the consultations.
If questions about rights holders are added, does that mean that certain other questions about other sectors will have to be removed from the questionnaire?
