Thanks very much, Mr. Chair.
I have a brief comment replying to Ms. Dzerowicz. The Library of Parliament information that we've received, in terms of funding, clearly shows that the peak for funding for the Auditor General was 2011. It was a minority government going into a majority government. It was $95 million, and it's fallen to $87.9 million. You don't need to be an auditor general to know that $95 million is considerably more than $87.9 million. That's in current dollars. In constant dollars, the difference between what the Auditor General should be getting and what it is getting is even greater.
Again, Liberals and Conservatives have been finger-pointing. They've both been awful and they both should be ashamed of themselves, but a minority Parliament will restore the appropriate funding, and hopefully, Ms. Hogan will be able to get that independent funding mechanism. That's vitally important.
I have a couple of questions for Mr. Hayes, and one for you, Ms. Hogan.
The issues of the infrastructure bank, I assume, will include what has been flagged by a number of people, the executive bonuses that have been part of the infrastructure bank and the massive staff turnover. That's my question for you.

Finally, on subsidies for oil and gas—
