I thank the witnesses for being here, specifically Mr. Ferguson, who is going through some trying times. My condolences to you on the passing of your mother. I trust that all the members of the committee will join me in offering you our condolences.
In section 7.48 of your report, you describe the methodology used by Transport Canada to determine the number of inspections. This methodology has been in place since 1994, so for 20 years. The Department of Transport is always quick to accept all the recommendations. The fact is that, 20 years later, it has reduced its level of incompetence. However, with an inspection rate of 26%, its performance is still a long way from being acceptable.
Can you explain the methodology being used since 1994 and why it is not more up to date?
