Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I'm actually going to pick up where Mrs. Wagantall left off with you, Ms. Moss, please.
Were you or was your organization involved in any way in the CGSB process—which was aborted—in connection with trying to develop a standard for service dogs for veterans?

No, you have five minutes. You can use it all. I'm quite interested in this. You go right ahead.

The first process failed, and you have now embarked on a process that holds some promise. What is the status of your discussions with Veterans Affairs Canada or with the Government of Canada with respect to giving them an update, or any involvement that government might have? I mean, I would hope they're interested in your work.

We'll call the meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting 55 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the motion adopted by the committee on Tuesday, April 27, the committee is meeting to study the Canada Revenue Agency's efforts to combat tax avoidance and evasion.
This meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of January 25. Between ourselves as members and the witnesses on the panel today, I don't think we need to go through all of the further rules.
I should mention to committee members that we will reserve about 15 minutes at the end of the meeting. We have the report on the steering committee to deal with, which members have been sent, and also Mr. Julian's motion. I understand there have been some discussions on it. It shouldn't take too long to dispose of those two items.
With that, our witnesses from the Canada Revenue Agency are Ted Gallivan and Alexandra MacLean. From the Department of Finance, they are Trevor McGowan, Stephanie Smith and Kevin Shoom.
I'm not sure if you each have an opening statement or if it's just one among you who does.
Maybe I'll turn it over to you, Mr. Gallivan, assistant commissioner, to start.

Hold on, Ted. I don't think we're getting translation.
Is that what it was about, Mr. Falk?
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Could we check on the translation again?
Just give us a couple of lines, Ted.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Are we getting the French, Gabriel? Yes? Okay.
Go ahead, Ted. Thank you.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Okay, thank you.
Does anybody else have anything to add? Is it Mr. McGowan with the Department of Finance?
I see quite a number of people have their cameras off—Ms. MacLean, Mr. McGowan, Ms. Smith, Mr. Shoom. You're quite free to leave them on. It's not like what we're doing with Bill C-30. Leave your cameras on if you like. You're quite fine either way, but it's better to see us. I see Ms. Smith is all smiles there.
Is there anybody else? Trevor, did you have anything you wanted to add?
Okay, with that, the lineup for the first round of questions is Mr. Kelly, Ms. Dzerowicz, Mr. Ste-Marie and Mr. Julian.
Mr. Kelly, you have six minutes

Sorry, go ahead.

Well, that's fine.

I don't have an explanation. The invitation was sent. The minister wasn't able to appear. We have also invited officials in her stead.
You've made your point. I will send a note to the minister that the committee was dissatisfied that she wasn't able to appear and that we look forward to her appearance at the earliest opportunity. That's about all we can do at this stage.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
I let that go on substantially, because I think that's pretty good information.
Ms. Dzerowicz.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
This is your last question, Julie.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
I would say to any other witnesses here that if you have additional information, put up your hand. If I don't see you, just yell.
Next we have Mr. Ste-Marie followed by Mr. Julian.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Gabriel, we'll have to get to the question.
Go ahead.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Sorry, Gabriel. You're way over the time. You'll get another round down the road a little ways.
We'll go to Mr. Julian next, followed by Mr. Lawrence.

Peter, I hate to correct your arithmetic, but it's $125 billion, not $150 billion, in five years.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Okay, I'll not take the time from you.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
This is your last question, Peter.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you both.
We will turn to Mr. Lawrence, who will be followed by Ms. Koutrakis.
Go ahead, Mr. Lawrence, for five minutes.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Does anybody from the Department of Finance want to enter? No?
Sorry, Mr. Lawrence; go ahead.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
All right. We are going to have to move on, Philip. I'm sorry.
Ms. Koutrakis and Mr. Sorbara were going to split their time, but we're used to an hour and a half in committee, and so I think we have time for them each to take the full time if they want to. I'll put Mr. Sorbara down further.
Ms. Koutrakis.

Lib. (PE)
We will have to move on, Annie.
Mr. Ste-Marie, go ahead for two to three minutes. Then it will be the same for Mr. Julian followed by Mr. Falk.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Who wants to take that?
Go ahead.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Okay.
Ms. Smith, you're on.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Ms. Smith, do you want to give that one a go?
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
We'll look forward to a written reply on that.
We will turn to Mr. Julian, who will be followed by Mr. Falk.
Peter.

Ms. Smith.
View Wayne Easter Profile

Mr. Julian, who is that question to?
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Okay. I guess that's Mr. Gallivan.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you all. We're well over, but—
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Go ahead, Gabriel.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you, Gabriel. That clears that up, Ms. Smith. It's article XXX on the written answer.
We'll go to Mr. Falk for five minutes, followed by Mr. McLeod.

Mr. Falk.
View Wayne Easter Profile

Well, Ted, you're not quite out of time, but that's okay. You have time for one quick question.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Mr. Gallivan.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you both.
I'll just give you the lineup to finish the rounds of questions: Mr. McLeod, Ms. Jansen, Mr. Sorbara and Mr. Fast.
Mr. McLeod, you have five minutes.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
You can have one more.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
I'm not sure. That might be Mr. McGowan.
Go ahead, Mr. McGowan.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you. We went a little over.
Next is Mrs. Jansen, followed by Mr. Sorbara.
Mrs. Jansen, go ahead, please.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Just hold on, Tamara. We're getting feedback from somewhere. Does somebody have their mike on?
Try it again, Ms. Jansen.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Did you want to add something, Alexandra Maclean?
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Base erosion....
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
No, Tamara. You're way over time.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
We might have time for supplementary question at the end, when we get the next witnesses on.
Trevor, did you want to add one thing? You're leaning forward.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
We'll come back to that later. We might run out of time. We'll hold that in abeyance for the moment.
We'll go to Mr. Sorbara, and then Mr. Fast. I'm not sure whether Mr. Fraser wants in.
Mr. Sorbara, you have five minutes.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Trevor, it's over to you.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Your clock is starting to run down, Francesco. You're going to have to be fairly rapid.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you both.
Mr. Fast.

Lib. (PE)
Ed, it might have even have come from the previous government.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
That will be the last question, Ed.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you, all.
We'll go to Mr. Fraser, I believe, and then I'll take three or four single questions.
If people want to raise their hand, I see Mr. Julian, Mr. Ste-Marie, and I know Ms. Jansen has one.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
You can have five minutes, if you want it.

Who wants to take it?

There you go.
Mr. Shoom.

You can ask a quick supplementary question if you want to, Sean.
View Wayne Easter Profile
Lib. (PE)
Okay. I'll go to Mr. Ste-Marie for one question, Mr. Julian for one and Tamara for one.

Lib. (PE)
Thank you, both.
