Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to the Auditor General and your team for appearing today.
I agree that this is an issue of confidence. Whether we're talking about fighter jets or getting the best value for the taxpayer's dollar, this government is about fairness and making sure we do the right thing with valuable public dollars, so I think it's important to note that this government agrees with you and is taking steps to implement your recommendations. That goes for the Canada Revenue Agency as well.
My questions for you are on chapter 4, non-filers and non-registrants. This program has approximately 700 employees and a budget of $39 million. In turn it generates roughly $2.8 billion in additional taxes, interest, and penalties.
In your view, is this an acceptable return on investment for the taxpayer dollars devoted to this activity?
