Environment committee  No, no. We made many requests during the time of our audit, for an entire year or more. It refused. It allowed us to proceed with writing in an audit that it had refused that information. That is “highly unusual” as Mike would say. The new order in council that was presented to

Environment committee  I'm an independent agent of Parliament and it's up to me to decide which audits to do when. I am hearing from this committee that this is a very important issue. I will go back into my planning exercise and see whether or not or when I can. I don't actually....

Environment committee  That is our understanding.
