Part VII says that the minister “may”. If it said “must” instead of “may”, you're saying that could be politically dangerous.
Given what you've said, do you think it would be a good idea to go that far an put the work “must” in part VII?

Honourable colleagues, we will resume the meeting later.
Mr. François Larocque is here with us. He is a professor at the Common Law Section of the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa.
Welcome, Mr. Larocque. Can you hear us?

That is great.
I will give you some context. Our committee asked the Standing Senate Committee on Official Languages, which is conducting a parallel study on modernization of the Act, to indicate to us the areas it did not have time to explore or delve into. That committee recommended a number of possible topics and our committee decided to address the concept of an administrative tribunal and the positive measures provided for in Part VII of the Act. I think I am the one who gave your name to the clerk because it seemed to me that you are an expert on issues related to tribunals and Part VII.
Mr. Larocque, you have 10 minutes for your testimony. Then we will do an enthusiastic tour of the table.
You have the floor.

Thank you, Mr. Larocque, for your historical overview.
These are very important premises. For a few minutes there I felt I was back at Université Laval and it was very nice to be in the classroom.
We will now move on quickly to Mr. Généreux.

Thank you, Dr. Larocque.
You may continue your remarks by answering a question from another member. I'm truly sorry, but we have to move on because of time constraints.
Mr. Arseneault, you have the floor.

Thank you, Dr. Larocque.
We now have the honour of moving on to northern Nova Scotia.

Thank you, Mr. Samson.
I have one more question, Dr. Larocque. We have one or two minutes left.
Going back to the Netflix issue that Mr. Choquette was talking about, the commissioner had the power to require certain documents to be produced, but he didn't use it. You said that it could be a matter of idiosyncrasy and strategy. Would it be advisable to take that power away from the commissioner? That would show him that we don't really care about his personal opinion and idiosyncrasy and that he has to take action and do what he has to do.

Does the act specifically state that the commissioner has the discretion to choose for himself?

Would it be better if he didn't have so much discretion?

Dr. Larocque, on behalf of the committee, thank you so much for sharing your valuable time with us. We may invite you back soon.
Until then, we wish you the best of luck with your research. Have a great day.
