I don't believe the society was for a referendum.
The point is well taken. It's important that people be adequately informed. We'll leave the timelines to the committee's report, but it's important to engage the public. This is why we're doing this and why we've had hearings both in Ottawa and across the country.

The subject has come up quite a bit in the hearings, both on the road and here in Ottawa. Some have said we should follow the New Zealand example of two referenda prior to a change and then one after the change to give approval or not to that change. Some have said, for example, that the 60% threshold in the B.C. referendum was arbitrary and too high, so some extent, yes, people have touched on the details, but it has revolved mostly around the principle of a referendum.

I guess what Mr. Rayes is saying is that we should note that New Zealand did have referenda before they changed, as well as after.
Yes, Mr. Cullen.

We don't want to get into a Q and A with the committee members, it's not our format. My understanding, and correct me if I'm wrong, was that you stated, Mr. Reid, that you're categorically in favour of a referendum and that no change option should be considered.

Yes, status quo is one of the options.

The status quo remains an option.

I'll try to answer.
It's a government decision and we'll make recommendations to the government. The decision is not ours. However, we must make recommendations and we have not reached the stage of writing the report. That's the best answer I can give you, Mr. Marcotte.
Does anyone else wish to speak?
Yes, sir. Can you identify yourself?

If I understand correctly, you're saying you're not in favour of a referendum?

It's not a point of order, but it's noted.
