Senator Dyck: I'd like to say a couple of words about this amendment.
First of all, I do not think it is an implicit admission of the need for more safeguards. Actually, if you look up the definition of the word "may," in laymen's language it's expressing a possibility. "May" can mean "may, yes," but also mean "may not." That is how I interpret it, that there may be a possibility that additional safeguards are needed.
Secondly, I will not support this motion because it's committing the Government of Canada, and I don't think we have evidence that the Government of Canada has committed to this. I don't feel we have the right, therefore, to meet that amendment.
