Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Fraser, thank you for being here today and meeting with the committee on your own personal time.
We all know how deep your knowledge of the Official Languages Act runs, on both a theoretical and a practical level.
Since you talked about the Gascon decision and the fact that the federal government is appealing the decision, I'd like to keep that momentum going.
You know as well as we do that the FCFA—

Yes, of course. Thank you.
You're aware that the FCFA is calling for stronger language in the modernized act, mainly, that the word “may” be replaced by the word “shall”—in English—and that the word “peut” be replaced by the word “doit”—in French.
Do you think that change in terminology should be applied to part VII as well?
If so, how would it impact the division of powers under the Constitution?

You're talking about regulations to enforce part VII, just as part IV has regulations, are you not?

As far as the other parts of the act are concerned, do you think changing the terminology from “may” to “shall” is appropriate?

I have a second question, Mr. Fraser.
Where do you stand on the idea of an administrative tribunal empowered to deal solely with official languages complaints? Do you think it's a good idea?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I would like to present a notice of motion. It is a notice of motion, because I have decided to change the motion I introduced 48 hours ago. We can debate it at our next meeting, next Tuesday.
It reads as follows:
That the Committee call on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to reverse its decision, effective April 1, 2019, to end unilingual francophone training at its academy, Depot Division in Saskatchewan.
I hereby give notice of this motion.
I will use these final seconds to thank you for appearing today, Mr. Fraser. Thank you also for the excellent work you have done and are certainly going to continue to do for the benefit of the Canadian duality.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Ms. Pelletier, good afternoon, and thank you for joining us today.
I invited you because I wanted to hear from an expert. You are one because you are the head of the Administrative Tribunals Support Service of Canada.
I want to make sure that I fully understood. You said earlier that there are from three to 100 members. Is that in your service or in each of the tribunals?

I am sure you understand that we invited you here because we are studying the possibility of an administrative tribunal devoted exclusively to the official languages.

How many member judges would an official languages tribunal require, in your opinion, based on an equivalent tribunal?

Since the mandate does not exist in this case, it is very difficult for you to give us any figures.
