Mr. Barnett:

Mr. Chairman, I rise, not to make general remarks, but to ask specific questions about clause 2. I was not in the House when the minister spoke on second reading and possibly he may have touched on the matter I am about to allude to. The definition section of the bill says that "urban area" means "an area and areas adjacent thereto that are classified by Statistics Canada in its most recent census ..." It would help us to understand the bill better if the definition were presented in less technical terms, as not every citizen of Canada reads the publications of Statistics Canada and knows exactly what that organization means by "urban area".
