What's the best-case scenario?

I wonder if you could you tell us a little more about the Supreme Court and the components of the decision that deals with psychiatric or mental health issues. That came up earlier, and I think it's distinct from the Quebec bill. I wonder if you could give us some guidance as to what they said, so that we can consider how far we might go in that regard.

I would like to nominate Michael Cooper to be the Conservative vice-chair.

Mr. Chair, I would like to move to amend that allocation of time. Perhaps not surprisingly, I think, if I'm understanding it correctly, in our judgment not enough time is being provided to elected members. In particular I would like to propose that, as you said, the Liberal House of Commons representative go first for five minutes, and then a Conservative House member of Parliament for five minutes, an NDP member for five, and then a Senate Conservative and a Senate Liberal for five each. I think that's what you have indicated.
After that, for the second round, I propose that there be a House of Commons Liberal for five minutes, a House of Commons Conservative for five minutes, an NDP member for five minutes, and a House of Commons Liberal for five minutes.
I think the benefit of that arrangement is that it provides the last word to the MP for the governing party, which I think is appropriate, and it also provides a total of 10 minutes for the NDP. Otherwise.... This is a very rare beast, isn't it? It's a special standing committee of the House and the Senate, and with great respect to the Senate, I think it's more appropriate to provide a longer period of time to elected representatives.

Thank you, Chair.
I appreciate what Mr. Rankin has shared and his amending motion, but the original motion as presented by the government provides the traditional balance. The government is the government, and the proposal giving the NDP an opportunity for one time of questioning in the first round, after which they would have to wait for the second round, has been traditional for their party, and it represents the number of seats in the House. I think it is fair, and therefore I will be voting against the amendment. I will support the original motion.

We have consent among all parties not to have a subcommittee on agenda but to have the agenda set in camera by all members.

That's correct.

I so move.

I have just a quick question. I think this is very normal and reasonable, with the understanding that video conferencing or video presentations should be given an opportunity and should actually be the first choice so that people don't have to travel.

I move that either joint chair, or, in accordance with the direction of the joint chairs, either joint clerk be authorized to commit funds and certify accounts from the approved budget of the committee.

The motion is that the joint chairs be empowered, at their discretion, to televise the committee's public proceedings.
