I understand, and you're really not committed to anything today. That being said, could you give us an idea of the size?

Thank you very much, Ms. Pelletier.
I will now venture into an area with which I am not very familiar: direct access and indirect access. Would the Commissioner of Official Languages give the green light or determine that an individual may apply directly to the tribunal? How do things work on the human rights side?

My understanding is that some administrative tribunals are not under your supervision. In fact, the word “supervision” is probably not the proper word, since your role is essentially one of support. In short, I would like to know why those tribunals are not your responsibility.

If an administrative tribunal were to be created within the next few months, what would you advise the government? As the present leader, would you advise the government to include the tribunal in your organization?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Good morning, Ms. Adam.
I am very pleased that you are here with us today. The last time we saw you was in December, in the middle of a storm, a political storm, not a winter one. We are finally coming out of the winter.
I see that you are still full of will and full of hope. It's more than hope, I feel: you have pointed out a huge number of very interesting solutions.
And yes, the fact that you are here today, still Chair of your board of governors, has been made possible by the two million dollars that the federal government has contributed, and that's great.
You said that you are having ongoing conversations with all levels of government, which includes the government of the province of Ontario, of course. I gather that the Université de l'Ontario français Act, 2017 has not been repealed, I gather.
I would like to know two things.
First, how do provincial authorities see the existence of the UOF?
Second, between December and today, what was your last correspondence with the Government of Ontario? Perhaps there was more. What is it about? Basically, what does it say?

Okay, I understand. Thank you.
As for your need for a location, I have seen a document that was sent to me, either by you or by the committee analyst. It contained a table. The columns in that table correspond to the criteria that you are looking for in each location.
I notice that two federal properties seem to be quite good matches, up to about 53%.
To this point, have you had discussions with any officials of the Canada Lands Company about the Moss Park Armoury on Queen Street or the parking lot on Queens Quay West?
Have you started any discussions at all?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Ms. Adam, I am going to go back to the table you gave us. As you have said, the locations at Moss Park Armouries and Queens Quay West interest you a great deal. I see that you have some concerns about the extent of soil contamination. For Canadians to fully understand the problem, let me say that contamination may not be major but it is still contamination. Do you have specific questions, apart from those about contamination and the accessibility of the properties, that you would like us to ask the officials from the Canada Lands Company, who will soon be appearing before our committee? I believe it's next Tuesday.

Without further ado, I now call the meeting to order.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(3)(f), we are continuing our study on the modernization of the Official Languages Act.
With honour and enthusiasm, we welcome today representatives of French for the Future and Canadian Parents for French.
I'd like to begin by apologizing, on behalf of the committee, for the vote that will soon be called. We will nevertheless have time to hear from both organizations, who will each have seven minutes for their presentation. Afterwards, we should be able to accommodate two or three rounds of questions.
At around 10 after 12, the bells will ring for a vote, and we will need unanimous consent from committee members to extend the meeting a bit longer or come back after the vote. At that point, we can talk about how we wish to proceed.
I'd like to thank all four witnesses, who travelled to be here today. It's very much appreciated. We'll have the representatives from French for the Future start us off.
Over to you, Mr. Boudreau.

Thank you.
I will now hand the floor over to the representatives of Canadian Parents for French.

Thank you very much for your remarks.
Without further ado, we will proceed to the first round of questions.
Mr. Généreux, you have the floor for six minutes.

I'm sorry for interrupting, but the bells are ringing to call for a vote in the House.
I need your unanimous consent to continue the meeting for 15 minutes.
Some hon. members: Agreed.

CPC (QC)
Thank you, Mr. Généreux.
We'll now move to Mr. Samson and then to Mr. Choquette. All parties will therefore have the opportunity to ask questions, which is very good.
Mr. Samson, the floor is yours.

Thank you, Mr. Samson. I think you could have been a sociologist.
Mr. Choquette, you have the floor.

I'm sorry to interrupt you. You have 45 seconds left.

CPC (QC)
Yes. It will be May 29 and 30, I believe.
We received the invitation.

CPC (QC)
Thank you very much for coming.
Lastly, you had almost an hour. The other hour was for internal business. Still, we've had a good meeting with you. We understood your message clearly.
Send us any additional information you may have, such as about the green card Mr. Samson mentioned. It will be submitted to the committee.
Please know that we are very happy with your work.
I hope you have a very nice weekend, which starts tomorrow.
Thank you.
Colleagues, we are leaving to vote, and that concludes today's meeting.
We'll see you in two weeks.
The meeting is adjourned.

Hello, dear colleagues, and welcome to the witnesses who are here with us this morning.
As you know, there are votes scheduled and we have to resolve some technical issues.
Mr. Tremblay, Ms. O'Donnell, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I need a quick response from my committee colleagues.
We have two choices. We can give Mr. Tremblay 10 minutes since he is first on the list and then give Ms. O'Donnell 10 minutes when we get back or we could give the witnesses five minutes each right now. I don't want to use 20 minutes because that will leave us only 10 minutes to get to the House of Commons, which may not be enough time for some people. It is not a matter of privilege. I just want to make sure everyone gets there on time.
How would you like to proceed?
View Alupa Clarke Profile
CPC (QC)
Yes, that's a good idea. Ms. O'Donnell, Mr. Tremblay, what would you prefer?
What do you think, Ms. O'Donnell?
View Alupa Clarke Profile
CPC (QC)
Okay. From what I understand, Ms. O'Donnell would rather use her 10 minutes of speaking time all at once.
Mr. Tremblay, we will start with you. You have 10 minutes. We will then suspend the meeting so that my colleagues and I can go to the House to vote and then we will come back here.
Mr. Rioux, did you have a comment?

CPC (QC)
Ms. O'Donnell, are you free from noon until 1 p.m.?
View Alupa Clarke Profile
CPC (QC)
Thank you very much.
We are continuing our study on the modernization of the Official Languages Act, pursuant to Standing Order 108(3)(f). Today, we are pleased to welcome Michel Tremblay, the general director of the Société Santé en français or SSF and, by video conference from Montreal, Lorraine O'Donnell, coordinator-researcher for the Quebec English-Speaking Communities Research Network at Concordia University.
Before we move on, I would like to know whether we have unanimous consent to proceed in the manner on which we just agreed.
Yes? Thank you.
Mr. Tremblay, the time is yours.

You have one minute left, Mr. Tremblay.

Thank you for your presentation, Mr. Tremblay.
I would like to remind everyone here and Ms. O'Donnell that we need to go to the House to vote now. That is part of parliamentary life, but we like it. Thank you for your understanding.
We will meet back here after the vote. Ms. O'Donnell, you can give your presentation from noon until 12:10 p.m. We will wrap things up at 12:50 p.m. because the members of our committee really need to meet in camera to deal with some upcoming issues.
The sitting was suspended.
