It is 3:30 p.m., so we will get started. I now call the meeting to order.
At the end of our last meeting, we were discussing Mr. Albas' subamendment to Ms. Saks's amendment.
Mr. Bittle had the floor, and I'm not sure whether he had finished speaking. The next speakers on my list were Mr. Baker, Ms. Saks and Mr. Saini, in that order. Do I have that right?

Mr. Chair, I'd like to move a friendly amendment. May I do it now or do I wait until everyone has had their turn?

You'll have to wait until we get to you. I see you've clicked on the “raise hand” feature, so I will add you to the list.

Thanks very much, Chair.
I want to reiterate my support for the amendment proposed by Ms. Saks.
At our last meeting, we heard from the Environment and Climate Change Canada officials. We also heard from members of the waste management and recycling industry all over the country. The public servants are the experts; they are the ones working every day to keep the system robust. I trust them and I trust what they told us when they appeared before the committee.
Mr. Albas has proposed in his amendment a timeline that is not achievable for a number of reasons. There is a range of deficiencies in the bill.
Namely, I'm referring to the lack of clear definitions, the inaccuracies in certain definitions, the fact that it's impossible to [Technical difficulty—Editor].
For example, if Bill C-204 were implemented, plastic waste that would normally be sent to another country would remain in Canada. However, according to what witnesses told us, we don't even have the capacity to dispose of the plastic here, in Canada.
If it were even possible to fix that, the government would need time to remedy all the deficiencies—

I have a point of order on relevance.
Mr. Chair, he's speaking to other elements of the bill. We should only be speaking to my subamendment, for proper debate. Otherwise, like in the last meeting, we will be talking endlessly about the same tired points that the Liberals are trying to hide behind.

Mr. Baker, are you essentially trying to address the change that Mr. Albas is proposing to Ms. Saks's amendment? In other words, Mr. Albas is saying that the coming into force should be six months after adoption. Is that what you're speaking to, Mr. Baker?

Lib. (ON)
Yes. I think what I was saying is perfectly relevant, Chair.
To respond to the point of order, the time and all of the things I'm raising are relevant in determining what an appropriate time for implementation would be. If you need to correct deficiencies in a bill, you need time to do that. I'm explaining what some of those deficiencies are for the purpose of explaining why we need more time than what Mr. Albas has proposed.

Okay, I understand. Yes, that's relevant.
Are you finished your intervention?

Not yet, no.
