Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, witnesses, and thank you for your service to our country. In the public service we have remarkable individuals, and I appreciate that.
I'll start off with a comment, following up on Mr. Fraser's questions. We already know that fraud is covered in the Criminal Code. We already know that the police can prosecute. If you do a Google search, you can find several cases of fraud that are being followed up on right now and in prosecution. I'll just put aside the idea that there needs to be some draconian enhancements to force people who have gotten the emergency benefit...to penalize them, put them in jail or fine them. The Criminal Code already covers that.
I think that comment is important. I don't like this dialogue about somehow penalizing people who are in desperate straits and putting them in jail. In cases of systemic fraud, they already can be prosecuted. That is the solution, and that is why we certainly won't support any draconian provisions in any omnibus legislation going forward.
My questions are around the auditor provisions. The amount of $27 million is for, I believe, enhanced auditing through CRA. Could you tell me how many auditing positions that would represent?
