Thank you very much, Madam Chair.
Mr. Plamondon, it seems to me we have a strange situation on our hands. The government claims it will never again open up breaches in the supply management system, but it nevertheless doesn't want to adopt an act that would prohibit it from doing so. In other words, it wants to keep all its options open. The Liberals are afraid it may be impossible to reach a free trade treaty with new partners if it can't open up breaches.
How should Canadians and Quebeckers who depend on the supply management system understand this tension within government, which claims it doesn't want to open up breaches but simultaneously wants to keep all options open?

Another argument we often hear is that we'll never be able to reach another free trade agreement if we have this kind of restriction in place. However, we have other well-established limits on national security and the cultural exemption, and that hasn't prevented us from signing free trade agreements.
Why do you think the Liberals and others think that this issue is different and that we can't hang onto this kind of exemption?

Thank you very much.
At one point in Mr. Darling's testimony, I believe I heard him say that Bill C-216 would be in breach of or would violate some existing trade rules. It caught me by surprise only because I'm not aware of any rules that would prohibit a country from determining in advance what's on or off the table in terms of a trade negotiation.
Could you confirm whether I heard him right in that respect, and if so, could he highlight where that rule is? Is it at the WTO? Could you give us a little more clarity about that rule?

Is it a rule or a principle, and where would we find an enunciation of the principles that you're talking about?

I think it's important to note that the current government has said that under no circumstances would they cede any further market share in dairy. Therefore, in this case, the law wouldn't be doing anything that the government hasn't said it's already going to do at the negotiating table.
Mr. Taillon, in the meantime, do you know of any rules that the bill might violate. Is there any rule according to which the government or Parliament cannot deem in advance that a specified industry or management system cannot be subject to negotiation in a free-trade agreement?

Yes, that's right.

Thanks very much, Mr. Chair.
I want to ask Dr. Lucas some questions here.
The contract with Switch Health to oversee post-arrival coronavirus tests for travellers has been renewed, despite media reports that the company has bungled the process. I've raised this a number of times in our meetings in the past.
What communications did your department have with the Government of Ontario about an RFP for post-arrival testing?

Mr. Lucas, are you not in charge of that?

Yes, I've been in touch with them many times.
Mr. Stewart, go ahead.

Thanks. What communications did your department have then, Mr. Matthews, with the Government of Ontario prior to the RFP being given to Switch Health?

Did Switch Health ask anyone in your department to change the day-10 test to a day-8 test?

On the contract we were talking about earlier with Switch Health, are they currently legally obligated to ensure that samples collected via the online portal are collected under the supervision of a nurse?
