Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you, Don, for bringing that up. It is an important issue, and I think I can speak for all of us here when I say that we are horrified by this.
The minister has appeared in front of the committee. We know her feelings on it. We also know that this is being worked on by three different committees because it's also being worked on by Indigenous Services and by Status of Women.
What I'm asking for is a friendly amendment to this. As the minister has appeared, and since we know her feelings on this, we amend that instead we have the officials from Health Canada appear, to get their take on it. I think many of the questions we would have would be more of a technical nature, which the minister would refer to the officials anyway. I don't know the value of having the minister here when we've already asked her about this, but we could get some very useful information from Health Canada and other related government officials.
Would you be prepared to accept that friendly amendment?

Thank you, Dr. Eyolfson.
I do think that as the head of the ministry and the person responsible to the Canadian public, the Minister of Health ought to be here to answer questions, but in the spirit of co-operation, I'm happy to accept the amendment and accept a briefing from the department officials if that's the will of the majority.

I was just wondering if the motion should be amended again to take out the word “indigenous” so it just says “women” so we are as broad as possible. We would study the forcing of women, because I think it's not necessarily just indigenous women.
Could we vote on it?
If we get that report we could read it over the break and pick this up in February.
If I don't get a chance, I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy new year.
