Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the motion adopted by the Committee on Tuesday, October 20, 2009, the Committee resumed its study of the findings in the Correctional Investigator’s Report regarding the incarceration of Aboriginal women.

Jean Crowder moved, — That the Committee has considered the 2008-2009 report of the Office of the Correctional Investigator, and its supplement entitled “Good Intentions, Disappointing Results” and recommends the implementation of the Correctional Investigator’s recommendations, and that the adoption of this motion be reported to the House.


The Chair ruled the proposed motion inadmissible because it contravenes Standing Order 108 (2).


Whereupon, Marc Lemay appealed the decision of the Chair.

The question: "Shall the decision of the Chair be sustained?" was put and the decision was overturned, by a show of hands: YEAS: 5; NAYS: 6.
