Mr. Hoback spoke most eloquently, but when we look at the package of Bill C-30, it exists to address an urgent situation in western Canada regarding the movement of grain. That's right now and for the foreseeable future. It's not meant to be a change. These changes are not meant to be in effect for eternity, for any long period of time. They're meant to be in effect to address the problem that exists today until it is properly rectified.
That's the whole package of changes. That's why I was asking Madame Brosseau some questions about this particular amendment, because this is a package of changes, not just a single change. It all works together in the same piece of legislation to address the problem that exists today and for the foreseeable future.
As Mr. Hoback said, “I think it's appropriate that it has a sunset clause”. As I mentioned in my first remarks, that sunset clause can be delayed. The clauses that would repeal all of what we're doing in Bill C-30 can be delayed if the situation has not been rectified by the time we get to August 2016.
There is already a mechanism that allows for the extension of all of these provisions built into the legislation if the problem has not been rectified in a suitable way by August 2016. I believe we've addressed this in a very comprehensive manner. It has a start; it has a finish. The finish can be extended if the problem of moving grain in western Canada has not been rectified in a meaningful way.
As Mr. Hoback mentioned, there's going to be a full review of the Canada Transportation Act earlier than previously thought. That will start, as you said, this summer, Mr. Hoback. That might be where discussion would take place about long-term changes to the Canada Transportation Act as opposed to what's seen here as a short-term implementation of initiatives to address a specific problem, and then routing one of them out and saying, “Well, that one we want to go on and on and on”.
In fact, as Mr. Hoback said, that would or could restrict or have an impact on the more fulsome review of the Canada Transportation Act when it starts this summer.
