With respect to the statistics, I'm holding the Transportation Safety Board of Canada's report.
They say that there has been a significant downward trend in accident rates, the number of accidents per 100,000 flying hours, in the last decade, from 7.0 in 2002 to 5.7 in 2011. That's the last 10-year period they report on. We'll wait and see what the updates are.
It's one thing to selectively cherry-pick a couple of statistics, but even the accident rates in 2013 are lower than 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and I could go on, Chair.
To get back to our witnesses and the matter at hand today, one of the reasons we asked Transport officials to return is that in response to several reports of the Auditor General, Transport Canada has made very specific commitments associated with very specific timelines on how they will respond. These commitments were in response to the Auditor General's reports in 2008 and 2012 on aviation, to the 2011 report from the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, and most recently to the Auditor General’s report on rail sector in his 2013 report. This committee shares the consensus that it should be a point of accountability to ensure that Transport Canada, in fact, is meeting its obligations that it stated in the report and that there's no slippage on the part of Transport Canada officials.
Now to the reports. In the 2008 report of the Auditor General of Canada, chapter 3, “Oversight of Air Transportation Safety”, I'm looking at the appendix, and there are nine recommendations. How many of those have been fulfilled by Transport Canada officials?
