I'll just say this is the first moment that I've seen these amendments, and I agree with Mr. Gaudet. There's quite a bit in here and quite a bit the government is doing with these amendments that may change the nature of the bill. I don't understand, because this copy just handed to me is the first indication there were amendments. That may be our fault, but those amendments came out very late in the day to our staff and they had gone home, so we didn't see them. That's an unfortunate reality.
In order for us to look at amendments of this nature, we need a little time. In the spirit of cooperation, I'd like to come up with a solution to this that would work. If the government has something to say about this bill, I'd like to understand it. Perhaps we will be enlightened after the presentation is made, but it's going to be very difficult to work on these amendments without that enlightenment.
