Thank you, Madam Chair. I appreciate this.
I want to make two points. First, MP Waugh will be subbing in for me.

The second thing is for Mr. Levy. I'm going to be a grandfather on May 16 and my grandson's name will be Levy. I wish I could be here for the conversation, but this is pretty exciting.
Thank you, Madam Chair. Have a great meeting.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you very much to each witness for coming forward today. We certainly appreciate your testimony.
My first question is for you, Mr. Mancinelli. Specifically, I really, really appreciate your mentioning, sir, that this is much larger than just petroleum and just oil. It affects so many fronts. It affects our farmers, the 38,000 farmers in Ontario you spoke of; of course the auto industry; and of course our advanced manufacturers, whose motto is really, “We make things to make things.”
I also heard you say, sir, that there were 15,000 good-paying union jobs in Michigan. There must be some kind of collective effort to be lobbying Governor Whitmer. What specifically has the Michigan union done to help the cause, going forward? Are they lobbying the governor as well?

Thank you very much, sir.
Mr. Strickland, I really appreciated your saying that there has to be some type of bilateral approach. I very much agree with you that it can't be just the United States or Michigan talking to Canada. It has to be very integrated and very bilateral.
I'm wondering, though, because the Canadian government has fallen, quite frankly, on its face with regard to the oil industry in the west, if you think perhaps that might be an out for the governor to say, “Listen, we can do what we want to do anyway, because you can't even get your own house in order.”

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
It won't be a question; it will be one very quick statement, the one I really want to lay on MP Masse. He hit the nail on the head with regard to commercial congestion. It hits our nurses, our doctors and our business owners who are trying to cross the busiest international border in North America.
It's much larger, as Mr. Mancinelli said.
I thank the witnesses once again.
Thank you, Chair.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you very much to the witnesses. Those were fantastic remarks.
If I get to all three of my questions, great, but I have two specifically that I would like both witnesses to respond to, please.
The witness in the last panel spoke about how it's very much a one-way conversation. Michigan does all the talking, and apparently Ontario and Canada have to do all the listening. I find it very interesting that there's not more of a bilateral approach to this. As we all know, both economies rely so strongly on each other.
Take the auto assembly industry as an example. Chrysler is just outside my riding. I believe parts of a vehicle actually go back and forth on the busiest international bridge seven times before they're assembled to make one vehicle. That goes both ways: in Ontario—in Windsor-Essex—and in Michigan, downriver. That doesn't even include the supply chains and the manufacturers that go along with it.
To each of our witnesses, what economic impact do you see with regard to jobs and losing jobs, specifically with regard to Canada bleeding and hemorrhaging jobs out of our economy? What impact do you see?

Thank you very much, Ms. Greenwood. I'm sorry to cut you off, but I have one more question.
As a very important point now, our last presenter spoke—and I believe you did, as well—about how 540,000 barrels would have to go by railcar, ship and/or truck. The last witness mentioned upwards of 15,000 trucks a day. I think Mr. Henry mentioned some 2,000.
One more truck on the busiest international bridge is not only going to interrupt production—

Thank you very much. I will be brief.
It's not only going to affect production, manufacturing and the supply chain; it's also going to very much affect our nurses, our doctors, and our business folks who are trying to get across the border. It's going to completely congest transportation at the busiest international border crossing.
Mr. Henry, do you have any comments on that?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
I'm going to be very brief on my questions, because I have a lot that I could ask today.
We've heard from the provinces that they would like to see more money from the federal government to support legal aid. Instead, according to the main estimates, less money will be provided in 2021-22. Why is the amount being decreased?

Thank you very much to the witness.
Through you, Madam Chair, what conversations have you had with provincial counterparts on this funding cut?

Thank you.
It's really important that we bring our provincial friends to the table and have those discussions.
How do you expect legal aid programs to replace that money that's being lost?

Thank you for the answer.
Madam Chair, through you, the funding for the Canadian Judicial Council in supplementary estimates (C) nearly doubles, to $4.2 million.
Can you explain this doubling of funds required?

The victims fund in 2020-2021 only spent $14.8 million, whereas in 2019-2020 it spent $26.3 million.
Can you explain this significant decrease?

Thank you very much.
I know I have well under a minute remaining for time, so I have a very quick question.
In October 2020, a new version of the new e-filing portal launched, although I understand there were significant technical issues.
Can you address the costs associated with this new e-filing portal? When is it now planned to launch again?
