Standing Committee on Official Languages



Tuesday, May 26, 2015

[Recorded by Electronic Apparatus]



    Welcome to the 47th meeting of the Standing Committee on Official Languages. Today is Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
    We are here to discuss committee business and two motions of Mr. Nicholls, but he isn't here. I have the committee's consent to move on to the second item of our agenda, which is to consider the draft report.


    We have the consent of committee members to move into the second rubric of the orders of the day, which is to consider the draft report.
    We'll suspend for a minute to allow the technicians to bring us in camera.
    Before we do, however,


    Ms. St-Denis, do you have a question?
    Yes. Is Mr. Nicholls simply absent or has he resigned? I heard—
    He is absent because of family health issues.


    Okay, I didn't know.
    Because nobody is willing to move the motion, and there's been discussion among all members of all parties, we'll just move to the second item of business for today.
    We'll suspend for a minute to allow the technicians to go in camera.
    [Proceedings continue in camera]
