Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology



Tuesday, September 19, 2017

[Recorded by Electronic Apparatus]



     Welcome, everybody, to a new session, a new life. We're all energized. We're all excited.
    We have some new members with us.
    Mary Ng, welcome to INDU.
    On this side, we have a whole new lineup. We have Maxime, Matt Jeneroux, and Jim Eglinski. Of course, Bob, you're back. I mean Brian's back. Bob. I have a Bob Masse in my riding.
    You won't be forgetting my name after meeting one.
     Before we go in camera to do committee business, we have one order of business to do and that regards the vice-chair.
    Do you have a script for me?
    She's in charge of the election.
    Yes, she's in charge. I have nothing to do with it.
    Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the first vice-chair must be a member of the official opposition. I am now prepared to receive motions for the first vice-chair.
    I nominate Maxime Bernier for vice-chair.
    Thanks, Matt. I appreciate it.
    It has been moved by Matt Jeneroux that Maxime Bernier be elected as first vice-chair of the committee.
    Are there any further motions?
    Is it the pleasure of the committee to adopt the motion?
    Some hon. members: Agreed.
    (Motion agreed to)
    The Clerk: I declare the motion carried and Maxime Bernier duly elected the first vice-chair of the committee.
    I have to deliver a speech now.
    I just want to, first of all, let you know that I'm very pleased to be here, to be back in this portfolio and, in my role as critic, I will be very positive, as you know. I like this portfolio because I was industry minister before. I was on the committee before the leadership race, and now I'm back.
    Dan, you were the chair at that time. You're still the chair, and I think we'll have fun working together, but also, we have to be efficient and that will be the two goals that we'll have in mind.
    Thank you for those words.
    We will take a minute to go in camera, and then we can start discussing our future business.
