I call this meeting to order.
Welcome, everyone, to meeting number 43 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health.
The committee is meeting today to study the emergency situation facing Canadians in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I'd like to welcome the witnesses.
Appearing as an individual is Dr. Jillian Kohler, professor, Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto. Also appearing as an individual is Mr. Yanick Labrie, health economist.
Mr. Labrie will be joining us for both panels. He will be talking, actually, about the PMPRB, I understand.
We have, from Dan's Legacy Foundation, Ms. Barbara Coates, executive director; and Mr. Tom Littlewood, psychologist and program director.
I'd like now to invite the witnesses to make their brief statements.
Before we do that, I will note that I have cards—magic cards. I will display the yellow one when there's roughly a minute left in your time, and when your time is up, I'll display the red card. When you see the red card, you don't have to stop instantly, but do try to wrap up.
That being said, we will start now with Dr. Kohler.
Dr. Kohler, please go ahead. You have five minutes.

Welcome back. The meeting is now resumed.
The business before us at this time is on an emergency situation facing Canadians in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since this is a motion relating to the Patent Medicines Prices Review Board study, it's not related; it's not directly derived from this business.
I'm going to move it out of order at this time.
We did get a notice of motion, and it's certainly acceptable as a notice of motion.

If you could wait until I have finished speaking—
View Ron McKinnon Profile
Lib. (BC)
I would advise the committee that the timelines mentioned in this, given the backlog in translations, etc., are probably not achievable, and I would suggest that we get the analyst to weigh in on this.
Monsieur Thériault, you challenged my ruling. That is not debatable, so we will have a vote on that.
View Ron McKinnon Profile
Lib. (BC)
Thank you. That's fair enough.
The question is, shall the decision of the chair be sustained? If you vote yes, you agree with the chair that the motion is not in order at this time. If you vote no, you're reporting that the motion is in order at this time.
(Ruling of the chair sustained: yeas 8; nays 3)
The Chair: Thank you, all. The decision of the chair is sustained. I would advise Mr. Thériault that as a notice of motion, this is okay. He can move it at our next meeting.
Thank you, all. The witnesses have departed, but I would like to thank them in absentia for their help, their great testimony and their sharing of time with us. I would also like to thank the members of the committee for their participation today and their care and concern.
With that, we are adjourned. Thank you.
