Honourable members of the committee, I see a quorum.
I must inform members that the clerk of the committee can only receive motions for the election of the chair. The clerk cannot receive other types of motions, cannot entertain points of order nor participate in debate.
We can now proceed to the election of the chair. Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the chair must be a member of the government party.
I am ready to receive motions for the chair.

Thank you very much.
Thank you, members. I'm looking forward to working with you again this session.

Madam Chair, I remember that, in the last session, Mr. Masse was also a vice-chair. Is it something we would be willing to accept, to have a third vice-chair once again, considering the fact that this is how it has worked in the past?

I understand that the decision is still before the Board of Internal Economy on whether or not there's a possibility of having a further vice-chair. I'm checking with the clerk. I understand that, at the moment, we cannot pursue that, but I would like to confer further with the clerk and get back to the committee.
I agree that it worked very well in the last session, and if we are able to do so, we would like to proceed that way. Let me get back to the committee with respect to the ability of the committee to accept another vice-chair.
If it is the will of the committee, I will now move to go through the routine motions. We will go over them one by one so they can be debated and voted on as such.
With that, I will open the floor to the routine motions.
Madam Jaczek.

You will notice that other committees had to work in the word “collaboration”.

On that note, because it's already in the motion, I think, in the spirit of this committee, we didn't have a problem.
Are there any other comments or questions regarding this?

I have a quick question on that, Madam Chair.
Is that different from ours? I think it might be. This is coming from the overall process. Is it the same or is it a little different?

This one is the same as the one we had in the last session.
Are there any questions or comments on the motion?
Go ahead, Madam Lambropoulos.

Currently it says that witnesses have 10 minutes to give their testimony. We saw in the summer, when we were meeting almost the entire summer, that many times we had tech glitches and difficulties that did not allow us to complete all of our rounds.
Are we willing to shorten the amount of time that witnesses have to speak at the very beginning to make sure that all members have time to ask their questions and that all rounds will be completed?

Thank you very much, Madam Lambropoulos.
Is this a friendly amendment that you would like to make, and if so, how much time would you like allocated?
View Emmanuella Lambropoulos Profile
Lib. (QC)
I believe that something around seven minutes might give us more time to allow all of us to ask our questions. That's why the witnesses are here in the first place: to answer our questions.
Seven minutes at the beginning may be apropos, if that's okay with everyone else.

No, I think it's reasonable, Madam Chair. Sometimes we've gone in this direction before, so I support formalizing it to ease the transition.
