Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage



Tuesday, April 11, 2017

[Recorded by Electronic Apparatus]



     I call the committee to order. Just in case we have to run out again soon, I'd like us to get at least three paragraphs of our report done.
    Before we go in camera to deal with the report, I think Ms. Dabrusin has just tabled a motion with the clerk.
    Ms. Dabrusin, would you like to read your motion?
    Thank you, Madam Chair.
    I move:
That the Committee undertake a study of at least 5 meetings on cultural hubs and cultural districts in Canada, including their economic impacts, their effects on arts and culture in Canada, the role they play in city building, and how the federal government can foster and support their development.
    Thank you, Ms. Dabrusin.
    Pierre, go ahead.


    I think that is an excellent idea.
    I would also like to introduce a motion, when the time comes, but before the committee goes in camera, of course.


    Thank you.
    Does anybody else wish to speak?
    (Motion agreed to)
    When we continue to assess our very fluid business plan, we can decide when we're going to go to this.
    Thank you. We'll take about a minute to suspend and then go in camera—


    One moment, Madam Chair.


    Is it about this?


    Yes, exactly.


    Then we're not yet in camera.
    Go ahead.


    I would like to introduce the following motion:
That the committee invite the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to appear before the committee within 45 days to discuss the efforts of the corporation, by virtue of its mandate, to ensure the representation of First Nations, Inuit and Métis, and of francophones, and concerning the corporation's activities in the context of the 150th anniversary of Canada.
    I will bring you the printed version in a few moments.


    You're giving us notice of a motion. Thank you, Pierre.
    We'll suspend for about a minute while we go in camera for the report.
    [Proceedings continue in camera]
