NDP (BC)
To John's comment, the House of Commons is not sitting, but we expressly, in the super-motion that is now governing how we're sitting until September 1, inserted a provision in there that gives the committees that are meeting right now the ability to request the production of papers. That is the tool we created, to Mr. Blois' point.
In asking a question, you sometimes don't get the level of detail you're requesting that's present in a document. That's why the provision in the super-motion passed by the House of Commons now gives standing committees...to order the production of papers. This is an exercise that committees can use. I think it's entirely appropriate to use this avenue.
We don't have the avenue in the House, but committees do, and so this is a power that we're exercising through this motion—to Mr. Barlow's point.
