Thank you. It's at the Charlottetown office. They may have it outside at the one in Summerside—I don't know—but the Charlottetown office is where I've been getting the complaints from anyway.
We do have a bit of committee business, but we'll release our witnesses.
Thank you very much. We've seen a lot of witnesses from CRA and especially Finance in recent weeks, so we thank you very much for coming to answer our questions. I wish you all the best. Have a good weekend when it comes around.
Now we turn to committee business. You have received the report of the subcommittee on agenda and procedure. I'll just read through it, and if there are any questions on it, somebody can move it.
We met on June 8 and recommended:1. That the committee meet for 2 hours on Thursday, June 10, 2021 and invite the Minister of National Revenue as well as senior officials from the Canada Revenue Agency and from the Department of Finance;
That's already done.
2. That the committee meet for 2 hours on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 and invite specialists and experts in the field related to tax evasion and that the committee meet for 2 hours on Thursday, June 17, 2021 and invite key stakeholders in relation to the tax evasion study;
The clerk has already sent out some invitations on one or both of those, but we're still short witnesses.
3. That the committee meet for 2 hours on Tuesday June 22, 2021 and invite the Minister of Finance and the Deputy Minister of Finance to appear in regards to tax policy commitments made at the G7 Finance Minister’s Meeting, as well as in regards to the monthly reports provided by the Department of Finance and others;
I expect that invitation has gone out.
4. That the Chair schedule a subcommittee meeting between June 17th and June 22nd, 2021;
We're working on that and we're not meeting with much success yet, but we'll have to try to find one somehow then or shortly after.
5. That, in relation to the committee's pre-budget consultations in advance of the 2022 budget: (a) the committee invite Canadians to share their recommendations in briefs of no longer than 2000 words, submitted through the committee's website, no later than Friday, August 6, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. EST; (b) this year's theme be—
We hadn't decided on one. In fact, we had quite a discussion, and I think Mr. Kelly mentioned maybe it would be left as “pre-budget consultations for 2022”.
(c) only one submission per individual or organization be accepted; (d) a succinct list of recommendations be included at the beginning of the written submissions; (e) all those who submit a written submission will be considered as having made a request to appear before the committee; (f) the clerk be allowed to publish submitted briefs, once they are translated in both official languages, on the Digital Binder Site of the committee; and (g) a news release be prepared by the analysts and the clerk, in consultation with the Chair, and be published on the committee's website and on social media to launch the process.
Does somebody want to move that and we can discuss it?
That's moved by Mr. Fast.
Is there any discussion?
