Thank you.
Mr. Giroux, can you tell us how much permanent spending is actually in the budget?

No worries. Thank you.

Okay. Thank you.
When you reviewed the numbers, did you detect any commitment to future reasonable deficits in this budget—yes or no?

Okay, thank you.
Without a commitment to a reasonable deficit reduction plan, what risk do we run of losing credibility with the international community?

Right.
Earlier the Governor of the Bank of Canada asserted that he will control inflation. Is it accurate to state conclusively that the Bank of Canada completely controls inflation simply with monetary policy? Aren't there other factors that impact inflation over which he has no control whatsoever?

Would relatively small pressure from these sorts of outside influences have serious consequences for us, yes or no?

Okay. The Department of Finance's own numbers say we could be back within spitting distance of more historical deficit numbers as early as the next fiscal year with no austerity measures necessary.
What risk does Canada face with taking on this enormous debt, considering the fact that interest rates are on the move and all signs point to rising inflation?

Thank you very much.
I'd like to give a special thanks to Sara Hodson for coming and giving us that wonderful presentation. I was able to see the whole presentation beforehand, which was great. I thought.... I mean, for myself.... Sitting on Zoom for hour upon hour for the last year, I know I've become very inactive and have gained weight. Definitely, you feel it mentally. There's no doubt about it. You and I discussed how much better we feel when we get up and get active.
What I really loved about your presentation that you gave to Ms. Freeland is the fact that, actually, it's a win-win.
Maybe you can fill us in a little bit more. You did mention that you have a lot more to say but that you didn't have enough time, so please fill us in.

Over the weekend, I got an email from a local constituent who also has a gym. I don't want to say too much about him because we haven't had a chance to talk, so I don't know that he wants to go public. He ended up buying a gym just before COVID happened. It's a long-standing gym that's been around for 30 years. Because of all the little wonky things with all the different programs, it looks like he's going to lose the gym.
I've dealt with so many people in my riding who have lost—whether it's a gym or a dance studio—things that have huge impacts on our communities and on our communities' health and mental health as well. I wonder if you could speak a little bit more about how much impact things like gyms, dance studios and so forth actually have on our local communities.

I wonder what your thoughts are on the lack of information coming from Health Canada in regard to physical activities being good for your health. I know that I was kind of shocked. I've heard very little about building your immunity with vitamins and with activities and stuff like that. I wonder if you could speak to that as well.

You were hoping that the government would incentivize people to take charge of their own health. It's a great idea. What were the savings that you said we could have had?

Thank you very much.
Mr. Lukács, I really appreciate the perspective you're coming from, in that you're looking to ensure that taxpayers are getting good bang for their buck. It's very much appreciated.
I can't tell you how terrible this was in the very beginning when we were repatriating constituents. There were families who were buying tickets, and then the flight would be cancelled. They'd buy another ticket, and the flight would be cancelled. They'd buy a third ticket, and the flight would be cancelled. They never received a refund. It was absolutely shocking.
You basically said that had the government taken quick action against the airlines for doing this, as other countries did, it could have had a bigger impact on what the deal looks like today.

Yes, absolutely.
We were hoping you had an idea of how many refunds were issued and how many are still left standing. Do you know the dollar figure?
