    Good morning, honourable members of the committee.
    We can now proceed to the election of the chair. I am ready to receive motions to that effect.


    Mr. Chair, I nominate Mr. James Rajotte for the position of chair of the committee.


    It has been moved by Massimo Pacetti that James Rajotte be elected as chair of the committee.
    Y a-t-il d'autres motions?
    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: I declare the motion carried and James Rajotte duly elected chair of the committee.
    Before inviting Mr. Rajotte to take the chair, if the committee wishes, we will now proceed to the election of vice-chairs.
    Are there any motions?
    I move Massimo Pacetti.
    It has been moved by Mr. Wallace that Massimo Pacetti be elected as vice-chair of the committee.
    Are there other motions?
    (Motion agreed to)

    Monsieur Roy.


    I nominate Mr. Jean-Yves Laforest for the position of second vice-chair.

    Are there any other motions?
    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: I declare the motion carried and Mr. Laforest duly elected vice-chair of the committee.


    Thank you, colleagues. I want to thank you all for your overwhelming support. I also want to congratulate the first and second vice-chairs.
     This meeting today is solely for the election of a chair and vice-chairs. We will have pre-budget consultations next week. And we'll see you all in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, on Monday.
    The meeting is adjourned.
