Honourable members of the committee, I see a quorum.
I must inform members that the clerk of the committee can only receive motions for the election of a chair. The clerk cannot receive other types of motions, cannot entertain points of order nor participate in 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 for the chair.

Thank you for that inspiring speech, Pam. I appreciate it. I think it was the robocalls that did it.
Before we get into routine motions, I just want to say that the work of the committee in the last Parliament was really quite excellent. There was a lot of consensus and important work was done. I'm hoping that we can continue that.
In a minority government there's always a temptation to chase every political rabbit down every political rabbit hole and at the end of the day, you wonder what you actually did here. This is an important committee. It's important work that we can do, and I'm rather hoping that we can work collaboratively to achieve all of those ends.
If I may introduce the best clerk on the Hill, Jean-Marie is a tremendously able individual and we were very blessed last time with great analysts as well.
Apparently, we have to elect vice-chairs.

Since more than one candidate has been nominated, pursuant to Standing Order 106(3), I'm required to preside over the election of the vice-chair by secret ballot.
We will be passing ballots around.

We are ready to proceed to routine motions.
Everyone has a package of routine motions. Do we want to go through them one by one?
The first is that the committee retain the services of more analysts from the Library of Parliament as needed to assist the committee in its work.
Is that acceptable?
I saw Madam Damoff nod her head. She is the mover.

Hold on a second. I want to check something. I don't have a good one here, because they changed the time.
The time limit for the parties to ask questions has been changed. It was seven minutes, as stated here, but it's now six minutes.

Where?

They changed the time we have for questioning witnesses. Instead of seven minutes, actually we have six minutes for the first round.
