EVIDENCE

[Recorded by Electronic Apparatus]

  (1140)  

[English]

    Honourable members of the committee,

[Translation]

    I see a quorum.

[English]

    We must proceed to the election of the chair.
    Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the chair must be a member of the government's party.
    I'm now ready to receive motions for the election of the chair.
    Ms. James.
    I respectfully put forward as a motion that Daryl Kramp sit as chair of this committee.
    It has been moved by Roxanne James that Daryl Kramp be elected as chair of the committee.
    Are there any further motions?
    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: Should I understand that the committee wants to proceed to the election of vice-chairs?
    Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the first vice-chair must be a member of the official opposition. I'm prepared to receive motions to that effect.
    Madam Doré Lefebvre.

[Translation]

    I would like to nominate Randall Garrison as first vice-chair of the committee.
    It has been moved by Ms. Doré Lefebvre that Randall Garrison be elected as first vice-chair of the committee.

[English]

    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the second vice-chair must be a member of an opposition party other than that of the official opposition.
    I'm now prepared to receive motions to that effect.
    Madam James.
    I respectfully put forward Mr. Wayne Easter as the next vice-chair.

[Translation]

    It has been moved by Ms. James that Wayne Easter be elected as second vice-chair of the committee.

[English]

    Are there any other motions?
    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: Mr. Kramp, please take the chair.
    Colleagues, thank you very much. I appreciate the honour.
    I will dispense with opening comments until we have our first formal meeting when we're moving forward.
    I hesitate to start off my first meeting with an apology. I was on a very important conference call and I couldn't get away as quickly as I wished. I thank you for your indulgence and your courtesy to be able to put up with me at this particular point. Obviously, I'm very hopeful that we'll have a very productive and engaged committee. With today's proceedings deemed primarily for the election of chairs—

  (1145)  

    I'd like to offer my congratulations.
    I understand that both the NDP and we on this side have motions to put forward. I'd like to propose that those motions be discussed next week, on Tuesday, with other routine proceedings.
    Therefore, I do move that we now adjourn this meeting.
    A motion for adjournment is non-debatable.
    I'll call for a vote on the matter.
    (Motion agreed to: yeas 7 nays 5)
    The Chair: This meeting is adjourned to the call of the chair.
