Mr. Thomas (Moncton):

Mr. Chairman, the answer the minister has given me has shed some new light, but I am at a loss to understand where the authority or direction is given to the CTC to hold a hearing. The minister said they must hold a hearing. The only clause I see that refers to a hearing is the one we are talking about amending. It says they "may" hold a hearing. There is nothing to compel them to do so. If there is a public hearing, that is fine.
