Thank you very much, Minister.
I'm pleased to be joined here today by my colleague from Madawaska-Restigouche. We worked together on this file very aggressively.
In terms of your first step, as you called it today, which I thought was an excellent step, there are a number of areas you touched on that involve this committee, and in fact involve the industry, in looking at gas: an oversight mechanism, strengthening competition laws through the Competition Bureau. Could you go into more detail in terms of your specific initiatives related to the Competition Bureau? That's number one.
Number two is the issue of fuel taxes. I know there have been experiences in other jurisdictions that have been studied by provincial ministers, finance ministers, and treasury ministers. What has their experience been, and in which jurisdictions, to your knowledge?
That's a twofold question.
