Thank you very much, Madam Chair.
Also, thank you to the officials for being here.
Monsieur Roussel, I have a question for you. I come from the province of New Brunswick and we had an election last year. Again, the government of the day was in a minority legislature and we didn't really know when an election was going to arise. I spoke to the New Brunswick chief electoral officer, who indicated that they had to be ready at any time for a potential election regardless of whether there was a pandemic or not.
I'm just wondering, because we are in a minority Parliament setting and knowing how efficient that you guys always are with respect to putting things in place, whether we would be prepared for an election should one arise at this point in time.
Let's be clear. None of us wants an election. I always say we are certainly not the ones voting against our government right now, so our voting record shows that we don't want a pandemic election. However, I'm just wondering if we would be prepared if one was to arise.

To qualify that, you could run an election. For the record, could we have an election run safely ?

I call the meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting 39 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food.
Pursuant to the order of reference of Wednesday, March 10, 2021, and the motion adopted by the committee on May 11, 2021, the committee is commencing the clause-by-clause consideration of Bill C-205, an act to amend the Health of Animals Act.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format pursuant to the House order of January 25, 2021, and therefore members are attending in person in the room and remotely using the Zoom application. The proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website, and the webcast will always show the person speaking rather than the entirety of the committee.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind all participants in this meeting that screenshots or taking a photo of the screen are not permitted.
To ensure an orderly meeting, I would like to outline a few rules.
Before speaking, please wait until I recognize you by name. If you are on the video conference, please click on the microphone icon to unmute your mike. For those in the room, your microphone will be controlled as normal by the proceedings and verification officer.
Just a reminder that all comments by members and witnesses must be addressed through the chair. When you are not speaking, your mike should be on mute.
Kody, you have your hand up.

Are there any further comments on the motion, before we take a vote? I don't see any hands up.

We're going to change to a witness panel. We'll let our witness in and do sound checks. I'll just suspend, and once it's ready, we'll come back.
Mr. Blois, do you have something to add? I see Mr. Steinley also.

Lib. (NB)
Thank you, Mr. Blois, for the suggestion.
Mr. Steinley, I assume that it's on the same topic.

Lib. (NB)
I don't see any other hands. We'll have to decide on Mr. Blois's suggestion.
Mr. Drouin.

Lib. (NB)
I don't see any other comments on that.
Is everybody agreed to continue as we had planned? You can raise your hand if you agree that we just go ahead with the original plan.
Some hon. members: Agreed.
The Chair: It looks as though we have a majority on that.
Mr. Komal, I certainly thank you for taking the time to join us today. We'll see you probably on Thursday, with the clause-by-clause. It's no disrespect and it's not because we wouldn't want you here, but we'll just concentrate on the other guests. Thank you so much for joining us today.

Thank you.
With that, we'll suspend. I don't know if the witness is ready or not.
We'll just suspend the meeting for now.

I call the meeting back to order.
With that, I welcome Dr. Jane Pritchard, who is the interim registrar of the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia.
Welcome to our panel, Ms. Pritchard.
We'll start with a five-minute opening statement, if you wish. The floor is yours.

Thank you so much, Dr. Pritchard.
Usually we have more than one witness here, but today all the attention will be on you. Our members are all collegial and respectful. Take your time. It will be good. Although I will be, don't feel that I'm interrupting if your time is up. I'll try to let you finish your sentence, but I might be cutting you off so that all our members have a chance to ask questions.
With that, we'll go to our first panel. Mr. Barlow, who is the sponsor of the bill, will lead off with six minutes of questions.
Go ahead, Mr. Barlow.
