I was just agreeing with the idea. I like the idea of incentives rather than punishment, so I thought maybe you were suggesting that there is a way we could give incentives to companies to do this.
I've been to Colombia, as I'd mentioned to Lina, and I've seen some and certainly heard about some of the damage that is done by companies that go into a country like Colombia or the African countries. If there were some way we could give them incentive to follow the rules and to follow human rights and so on, it would be good.
Lina, you were talking about development assistance. You said we should have legislation to decide the countries that Canada is going to support. Later on, you changed that slightly and said we should have legislation saying this money is only going to go towards poverty, not towards something else.
I was concerned when you said legislation to support the countries we pick. If we had legislation for that, then it would be hard to change the countries, because this year we might feel that this country needs support, and next year another country might need support. We wouldn't be able to change that very well if that were legislated in.
So what you really meant was that we should make sure the money goes for poverty and not for defence or something else, the military?
