Thank you, Madam Chair.
I don't know who said it, but I know I just won a bet with the “not open for business” slogan. I had predicted with my staff that I would hear that today, so I've won a coffee from Tim Hortons, which is now going to benefit 3G Capital, which has, in essence, allowed Canada's iconic coffee maker to drop from 13th to 67th in Canada's reputable companies, representing the biggest slide in history for that.
At any rate, I do want to ask Professor Balding a question here. Even private equity firms are unknown investment options in terms of a review as well. Should that also be a concern? There are a couple of factors we need to consider here. Canadians, through either corporate tax cuts or direct subsidies municipally, provincially or federally to acquire jobs or even research and development grants and waivers of costs, contribute to the economic growth and development of some of these companies through the jobs. When they are taken over, whether it be by China or other non-democratic governments, we don't know what we're getting into.
Is there a benefit to reviewing ownership that might come through another model?
