Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans



Thursday, April 19, 2018

[Recorded by Electronic Apparatus]



     Honourable members of the committee, I see a quorum.


    I must inform the members that the clerk of the committee cannot receive any motions for the election of the chair. The clerk cannot receive any motions and cannot hear any points of order or participate in the debate.


    We can now proceed to the election of the chair.
    Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the chair must be a member of the government party.


    I am ready to receive motions to fill the position of chair.


    Madam Clerk, I move that Bernadette Jordan be elected chair of the FOPO committee.
    It has been moved by Mr. Morrissey that Bernadette Jordan be elected chair of the committee.


    Are there any other motions?


    Seeing none, let me ask, is it the pleasure of the committee to adopt the motion?
    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: I declare the motion carried and Ms. Bernadette Jordan duly elected chair of the committee.
    I invite Bernadette Jordan, member for South Shore—St. Margarets to take the chair.
    First of all I want to thank you all for the confidence in me as chair. I would also like to welcome Churence Rogers to the committee.
    I'm going to suspend for a few minutes so that we can go in camera and continue with committee business.
    [Proceedings continue in camera]
