Hon. members, these past few weeks have certainly been a time of firsts in our parliamentary community. Today, for the first time, the special committee on COVID-19 met here in the House of Commons chamber following a successful virtual meeting that was held yesterday. It was good to see you all face to face. Even as we continue to observe social distancing, we have continued our work during the recalled sitting of the House that is now concluding.
We would not be here, in the House, without those who have worked non-stop to set up our meetings.
I would like to thank the members who are here, their staff, and all of the dedicated employees of the House Administration, the Library of Parliament and the Parliamentary Protective Service, who certainly sacrificed many hours of sleep to make sure this sitting was successful.
I thank all those who made today possible and those who are keeping us safe during these difficult times. We would not be able to do this without them.
I now go to the moment we have all been waiting for.
Pursuant to order made on Monday, April 20, the House stands adjourned until Monday, May 25, at 11 a.m. pursuant to Standing Orders 28(2) and 24(1).
(The House adjourned at 6:49 p.m.)
