Senate Committee on National Finance
The Senate of Canada
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A4
I think it will be the Senate National Finance Committee instead. Luckily that committee doesn’t look it is moving as fast on Bill C-31 as the Banking Committee so we have some more time. Additionally the chairman of the National Finance Committee is NOT a Conservative so that might be to our advantage.
You may send your submission in either Official Language to the Clerk of the Committee.
I don’t know if this is still relevant but the Standing Committee for Finance is different than what has been posted here.

Em, many of us need to be reminded that long briefs are not read. Probably short ones aren’t either. Some clerk simply tabulates the number of pros vs. the cons.
The conservatives are going to pass this bill in any case. We can only prepare for the next election.
The Harper government demonstrates less spine than the Lower House of Russia’s government. Russia’s Lower House is requiring a “TWO-sided treaty”, imposes obligations on BOTH parties, and CONSENT of the accountholder is required before the data can be sent:
” Russia has already prepared a bill that would regulate relations between Russian banks and their US counterparts. The draft was approved by the Finance Ministry and the Central Bank, but in mid-May this year the Lower House sent it back for reworking, saying that passing such legislation required a two-sided treaty between Russia and the US that would specify the obligations of both parties and the responsibility to failing to observe these obligations.
MP Anatoly Aksakov (Fair Russia) told reporters that the bill would be finished before June 1 and it will include both the type and amount of information that Russian banks can send to US authorities and the requirement that the information transfer must be performed only on condition of the client’s consent…. “…..
