Thank you, Madam Chair.
Welcome, Minister Garneau.
You've visited two times in the three weeks since work resumed. I invite you to maintain this pace. I must say we're always pleased to be able to address questions directly to the Minister.
My first question is simple. We've often talked about a bill proposing an alignment with the American legislation. I have the impression—you can tell me whether I'm right or wrong—that the alignment basically consists of catch-up measures in relation to the American legislation.
Does any part of Bill S-2 place us ahead of the curve and help us spearhead an American amendment?
