If you have no position, you don't see an issue with Huawei being the one developing 5G.

Sorry, I don't mean to rush you, but as you know, two minutes isn't much time.
Are any investments planned, and if so, how much? Has the federal government made so many millions available to work with Quebec on a training program or other cybercrime initiative, for example?

So measures have been put in place, but the same problem persists.
I continue to have concerns about this. An activist or a party loyalist could go to help an elderly person who is not very comfortable with the Internet and who has difficulty moving around, and take advantage of that in order to exert undue pressure on that person. That problem remains.
I would also like to hear what you have to say about the security of the votes cast. You talked a little about it before, but I would like to know how we can identify people using Internet security measures and make sure that no malware or viruses can tamper with the results.

I had a fear about the IT sector. In fact it was more a complaint. Technology is advancing quite quickly. I worked in the foreign affairs field, installing servers in all the departments, and I worked at Employment and Immigration Canada, in the international sector as well, installing computer systems. I know that the government put standards in place and soon realized that those standards were obsolete. The resources in the departments don't necessarily have all the security knowledge they currently need.
I'd like to have your office's diagnosis. Do the people who accompany you have high-tech training?

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I will be sharing my time with Mr. Bouchard.
Ladies and Gentlemen, good morning and welcome. I have a question.
On page 15, at line 30, clause 12(3) talks about the delay in these terms:
(3)The person who sent the commercial electronic message and the person —if different — on whose behalf the message was sent must ensure that effect is given to an indication sent in accordance with paragraph (1)(b) without delay, and in any event no later than 10 business days after the indication has been sent...
I will not bother reading clause 12(1).
Do you think 10 business days is a reasonable deadline? There may be a whole host of reasons why people might feel that this 10-day deadline is a bit tight. We have already discussed the possibility of changing this deadline to 30 days. The same goes for clause 12(4)(b), which also sets a 10-day deadline. That was my question for you. What was your reasoning behind setting this 10-day deadline, instead of a possible 30-day deadline?

Pardon me, but when this was being studied, I was not a member of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology. Is it mandatory to strike a person's name from a list electronically under the legislation?

I think it might be better to make it mandatory. With electronic means, it is relatively easy to make sure that people no longer wanting to receive messages can just click on a button at the bottom of the text to say so. In this case, a 10-day deadline seems like more than enough.
However, since this is not mandatory, it is not done that way. In that case, the delay might be prolonged for all sorts of reasons. Not all businesses have the same capacity to manage these situations.
What do you do then? Give them 30 days or make the electronic mode mandatory?

Not for profit sports or community organizations often do not have the resources for this, especially since they are increasingly being denied subsidies under this Conservative government.
If we extended the deadline to 30 days, how would that affect you?

You are therefore suggesting that the business that receives such a request takes full advantage of this 30-day deadline and waits until the last minute to make the change and in the meantime sends even more email because it is mad that someone would refuse to receive them.

Thank you Mr. Chair.
Thank you ladies and gentlemen for being here today.
My first question is for Ms. DiFrancesco.
First, we know that Bill C-28 was Bill C-27, which was studied in committee and made it all the way to the Senate. However, when the election was called, the bill died on the order paper. You said that Bill C-28 is quite similar to Bill C-27, which suggests that there are some changes. Could you share some of those changes?
I have another question about that. Do these changes come from officials or other entities?
View Robert Bouchard Profile
BQ (QC)
As far as I know, the changes are minor and stem from your analysis. You said you had the opportunity to review a number of minor aspects and that is what you did. No other agencies contacted you. This truly comes from the group of officials.

I have one last question.
We have been talking about the CRTC and other agencies such as the Competition Bureau and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. Do you think these agencies will need supplementary resources when Bill C-28 comes into force, or will they continue to work with their existing staff? I would like your opinion on that. What should be added in terms of budget, resources, staffing?

Have you estimated the number of additional employees and the supplementary budgets and funding? Have these numbers been communicated to these agencies, the CRTC, the Competition Bureau and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada? Have you communicated with them, are they aware, have they already made estimates? A budget is being prepared. Are things already being included in it?
