Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to the members of the committee for allowing me to sub in. I will try to live up to the reputation of Mr. Julian.
I appreciate hearing from you, Mr. Dufresne. You are very precise in your wording, as we've seen often. Given your precision when you give that advice to parliamentarians, one would hope that the government would also respond with that same precision, but unfortunately all of this confusion of course has come forward because they seem to have lacked the precision between the first press release and the clarification of the second.
I wanted to build off what my colleague, Mr. Ste-Marie, was talking about in terms of those different stages of a bill and specifically how they go through. As he mentioned, there were no amendments proposed at the committee stage of the bill. Everything was passed. It was passed through the Senate as well, with no changes.
If the government were to bring forward this legislation, or the amendments that it wishes to see in a different piece of legislation, and if the government stands as it is and Parliament stands as it is, it will go through those same processes. Is that correct?
