There's no debate. We're going to vote.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. If you allow me just a moment to clarify what we're prepared to do, it might expedite the process of voting on the bill.
I would move that that Bill C-597 be amended by deleting lines 12 to 14 of clause 1, which state, “on Remembrance Day, the Canadian flag on the Peace Tower shall be lowered to half-mast.” If that is agreed, we would be prepared to support the rest of the bill, on division.

On a point of order, Chair, Mr. Young had indicated that it was going to be Gregory Hines.

I have to withdraw my point of order.

Usually my math is pretty good, but when Mr. Dion asked if everyone understood exactly what was described, I put myself in the “no” category.
Perhaps, Mr. Forget or Mr. Southam, you could go at this again to give me your interpretation of what is currently in place and what you think should be there.

Yes, that helps. Sometimes a second or third time is the charm.
One of the pieces that you described is within the 1% of revenue to support Canadian film production. How should that money be divested?
That's one of the things that we dealt with in our study of the music industry. If additional revenue was in place, whether it be from the Ministry of Canadian Heritage or from the federal government, whether it was solely from the ministry, whether there was matching funds with the private sector, and all of the potential combinations of that, there was a concern as to how that money would be distributed and who would be making those decisions.
Perhaps you could elaborate further on that and perhaps we could get Michelle to comment as well. If we are going to extend or enhance the fund, how should that money be distributed and by whom?

One of the pieces you talked about was the tax credit, about how it's supportive and how it could potentially be enhanced. I wonder if you could expand on that from a visual effects perspective.

It's an interesting point.
You talked about the tremendous growth in the industry within Canada, and the jobs that are available now. The reason I relate to it or want to dig into it a little deeper is that you've done that under the model we have currently. If you've had that type of exponential growth over the last 10 years with the system we now have, would it be fair to say that the system is working?

Did that competition come within the last 10-year framework, or has it been more in the last four to five years, when provinces got a lot more aggressive and followed the lead of the federal government in terms of the credit, seeing that there was potential for them to grow within the country?

Thank you.
There was another piece in your comments that relates to the independent film industry. I've heard specifics on some of the changes you'd like to see happen. I noted that strengthening the existing tools, such as tax credits, was a piece in your presentation.
I wonder if you could expand on that a little bit. It certainly is a tool that has been well utilized. It has presented a large number of companies with an opportunity to grow within the country, but if we're going to expand the existing tool of tax credit, how do you think we should do that?

Mr. Provencher, I want you to expand on a couple of the points you made, and I think it follows up a little bit on the comments you've just made. You mentioned the Canada Media Fund and that style of funding for Telefilm. I wonder if you could expand on how that type of funding would work better for Telefilm than what is currently in place.

Thank you. I appreciate that.
Prem or Ann, one of the fascinating pieces of what you're doing which I think continues to surprise and shock a lot of us is that you're actually doing this without any kind of government funding, and certainly the intention is not to move in that direction. I wonder if any of your competitors, large or small, are endeavouring to work with the same kind of program and process that you've put in place.
