Can you provide some clarity on which officials? Are we talking about deputy ministers or assistant deputy ministers? Who is going to be briefing us?

Thank you to all of the witnesses for being here today and for all of your good work in the negotiation process.
My question is about supply management. I had a meeting this morning with representatives from SaskMilk, and there seemed to be some confusion about the tariffs that will be imposed if Canadian milk exports exceed a certain threshold.
I wonder if you could clarify this. Are the export tariffs that Canadian dairy producers have to pay only for exports to the United States and Mexico, or for exports to the rest of the world?

Are there similar requirements in the trans-Pacific partnership, the trade deal with the European Union, or any other free trade agreement Canada has ever entered?

I am wondering whether the negotiating team could give us some insight into how that particular requirement made it into the new NAFTA.

I also have some questions about the environmental standards that came up a little bit earlier in these meetings. Indeed, earlier this week and last week in the House of Commons, some Liberal members made the statement that we do not want to have a race to the bottom when it comes to environmental standards.
Have the United States and Mexico ratified the Paris Agreement?

They have.
In my province of Saskatchewan, in the southern part of the province, there's what's known as the Bakken oil field. Half of this oil field is on the Canadian side of the border, and half is on the American side. As I'm sure you're aware, the federal government recently imposed a carbon tax on the province of Saskatchewan.
I'm wondering if there are any requirements in the new NAFTA for oil drilling operations in North Dakota or Montana to have to pay a carbon tax or a similar fee the same way that this is the case on the Canadian side of the border.

All right.

I would like to finish my questions with the end of NAFTA, if I may, the sunset clause that is now being proposed in the new NAFTA.
I have heard from many stakeholders about the need for certainty in the marketplace. Indeed, my colleague Mr. Dhaliwal has talked about the need for predictability and stability in the marketplace.
I've also heard a few people in the media talk about how this deal will just get us through the Trump administration. This strikes me as a little bit short-sighted. I don't have a crystal ball, but imagine the year 2036, because I believe it is a 16-year sunset clause. If in the year 2036, the White House has an extremely protectionist president and the U.S. does not want to renew any NAFTA agreement with Canada or Mexico, does that mean that NAFTA is done and that we have no more free trade agreement with the United States or Mexico?

Okay, but just to be clear, under the old NAFTA, a party had to take the initiative to withdraw from NAFTA on six months' notice, but under the new NAFTA it expires, and the requirement to renew NAFTA is now on the shoulders of all three parties involved. Is that accurate?

Okay.
Madam Chair, I would like to give my remaining time to my colleague Colin Carrie.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Doctor de Villa, Ms. Go and Ms. Lin, thank you very much for your presentations. I'm going to apologize to you for taking a second to do something procedurally, and then I'll get back to ask you a question.
Mr. Chair, I would like to put a notice of motion for the following two motions, to be discussed in public forum. The first is:
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(1)(a), that the committee order all documents, including briefing notes, memos, emails, text messages, and summaries of phone calls prepared for the Minister of Health, Minister of Transport, Minister of Public Safety, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Minister of National Defence regarding the outbreak of the Coronavirus no later than February 28, 2020.
The second motion I'd like to put forward is this:
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(1)(a), that the committee order copies of all correspondence between the Government of Canada and provincial and territorial governments regarding the outbreak of the Coronavirus no later than February 28, 2020.

Thank you very much
Sorry, ladies. I appreciate your time and your presentations. Your comments are very pertinent to the issue we talked about.
Doctor, I'm wondering if you can enlighten us or expand on the issue of the testing process that's before you. In the city of Toronto, as big as it is, you will have a huge concern about that, and obviously when we have people who are concerned about that.... Can you tell us about that testing process? How does it work provincially, the testing process that you do?
My next question about that is, because you're doing that provincially.... I do believe that the testing process is valid and reliable, but you then have to send that to Winnipeg. Can you explain to us that difference? Are you comfortable that you could actually do that without having to do the follow-through to Winnipeg?
