Thank you.
My next question is along the same lines.
In response to questions from the opposition—mine in particular—the Prime Minister told the House, a few times, that he used the so-called Liberalist database, the infamous list of Liberal Party members and donors, but only after the candidates had made it through the other steps in the selection process. As far as he is concerned, it's an acceptable practice.
Obviously, I won't try today to determine whether it was acceptable to do things that way or not. What I'm interested in is how much that part of the process costs.
Can you tell me what the cost of conducting Liberalist checks on candidates is?

I can't answer that since it's not part of the process my department conducts. Neither the judicial advisory committees nor my team or I has access to the list. The process we follow is free from partisanship and political interests. The recommendations of the JACs are based on the candidate applications before them. Their job does not involve checking the list; nor does mine. I submit my recommendations to the Prime Minister's Office. I have said this publicly: so far, none of my recommendations has ever been blocked and I have never received any suggestions for appointees from the Prime Minister or his office.
I can't answer your question about cost, because what you are referring to is not part of our process.

Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to the witnesses.
I'll direct my first question to Ms. Krause.
Ms. Krause, you indicated that you sent a letter to WE seeking confirmation or clarification about whether they share their data with any political parties, including the Liberal Party. Have you received a response?

The question I asked is whether they share data with corporate partners or political parties, or anyone who supports them, and I did not receive a response.

Is there any basis upon which you have to suspect that they may be sharing their data with political parties, such as the Liberal Party of Canada?

Ms. Senior, I'm sorry to cut you off. It's just that I have three more questions. Thank you so much, and thanks for getting that money out. Thank you for helping the organizations in my riding as well.
My next question is for Ms. Krause.
Ms. Krause, I want to make sure I have this right, so please confirm this. You indicated that WE had shared data to the Liberal Party in 2015 in order to help the Liberal Party target ridings to win. Did I get that right?

I said that I wrote a letter last week to WE asking what they did with the data. I asked them if they give it to their corporate partners, if they give it to political parties, or if they give it to anyone working on political campaigns. I asked them what they do with the data.

Ms. Krause, you said that there is one source that had indicated to you that data was shared by WE to the Liberal Party in order to help them target ridings to win. Did you not say that?

Okay.
I do have some other questions. I just wanted to make sure I had that right. I was going to ask you whether or not you had any proof, because it's very difficult to leave those questions out there hanging.
