First of all, I'd like to thank the two witnesses who couldn't be here in person but are joining us from B.C.
I guess this is the best manner in which to do this, because this opportunity was taken away from you. As Mr. Cooper was saying, you were very persuasive on the victim fine surcharge and the harms that arise because of the system we've previously had. You're in favour of giving judges more discretion. Apart from that issue, is there any other aspect to this bill that is of interest to you and that you would like to comment on?

From my understanding of your testimony, you want to make it fairer and not all-encompassing to those who are more vulnerable in the justice system. It would be unfair for them to have to pay these surcharges, and the judge should be allowed more discretion to be able to make that differentiation. Am I correct?

Thank you.
Mr. Gratton, do you have any input to the amendments to the current Bill C-75 as they've been proposed by Pivot?

Absolutely. Thank you for that.
I also have a question regarding the new public confidence ground for judges standing aside prospective jurors, which is section 633. You are saying, currently, as the change is proposed, that we would see judges having too much discretion, and that it should be more explicit.
Could you elaborate on that particular recommendation?
