Mr. Speaker, I too want to congratulate my colleague from Joliette on succeeding in making such a brilliant presentation on such a technical bill, as he mentioned earlier.
I want to go back to a point he raised at the very beginning of his speech when he talked about the tax rebate to foreigners who visit our country.
In my riding, some tourists get their tax rebate just before crossing the border.They always spend the money right then and there, often buying regional and even local products. So there is a multiplying effect. Our riding benefits a lot more economically than if that money was not reimbursed.
I want to ask my colleague if this multiplying effect is real and if he believes that the same phenomenon could happen in places other than at the border, for example in airports or in hotels—I do not really know. Could this happen elsewhere?
