As you rightly noted, this is the third time in four years that I'm appearing before a transport committee on a proposed bill to address these types of issues.
I would make the following observation. My sense is that through this bill, which is the most comprehensive attempt to get at these issues, the witnesses and the shippers are becoming more focused in their recommendations, because this bill is actually making a serious attempt to address the issues. Our recommendations are getting really into the details. That's a good thing.
However, to answer your question, our view is that we're just falling short, particularly in the area of data. If we don't make these amendments—especially the one related to data—we will not be further ahead and will be back in another four years looking at another bill.
There is even a concern within the mining sector that without at least the amendments dealing with data, some of our members if not all of them could find themselves slightly worse off than they were under the current regime. That is the concern. There would still be more to come through regulations, so I say that with some caution.
Nevertheless, we feel that it's so close to making a very meaningful difference to the regime we've been struggling with for 20 years. It's just falling short, and if we don't go the extra mile, we will have really missed a tremendous opportunity.
