Thank you, Mr. Chair.
We want to note, too, that the purpose of the motion is to get a full picture of the situation, and we respect that, but the briefing notes and the memos would satisfy the reason. As you know, the volume of emails is particularly large for the time period, and, as Mr. Jeneroux said, we want to know as soon as possible. We want to know, too, and we want to balance the transparency. We want transparency, too.
I am in favour of removing emails, for privacy purposes. The main purpose of the motion is solved with briefing notes and the memos. What we want to know, we can get the answer to, and we can carry on as soon as possible. I think it's reasonable to ask to remove emails.
Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I'm saying this because of the assumption that we want transparency on this issue. We want to know exactly what happened in our long-term care homes, for example. We want to get all the information possible. I have one long-term care home in my riding. We want to protect privacy and the information coming out of the CAF report. That is why I support Mr. Fisher's comment.

Mr. Chair, I am having trouble being heard, but can I speak to Mr. Jeneroux's motion?

Mr. Chair, I would like to propose the following amendment to this motion. The amendment would read, “provided that the department does its assessment and vetting in gathering and releasing the documents as it would be done through the access to information process”.
As the members know, our federal departments are always discussing issues under provincial jurisdictions with their provincial colleagues. Many of these communications are included in documents that could be caught up in this motion as it stands now. The amendment I propose would ensure communication and trust between the provinces and the federal government is protected. This is a matter of protecting private information, while at the same time ensuring the committee gets the information it is looking for.
Furthermore, it's clear that the opposition members also agreed with this at one point, as this language has already been used in motions in AGRI and OGGO. It's reasonable that we use the same approach now, Mr. Chair.

Mr. Chair, I would like to propose the following amendment to this motion.
The amendment reads, “provided that the department does its assessment and vetting in gathering and releasing the documents as it would be done through the access to information process”. The reasoning for this amendment is the same as before. I believe adding language like this will ensure we receive the best information possible, while protecting privacy issues, such as interprovincial communications.

Mr. Chair, I would like to add the following language, regarding vetting by the department, to all of MP Jeneroux's motions: “provided that the department does its assessment and vetting in gathering and releasing the documents as it would be done through the access to information process.”

We are proposing to amend this motion to apply ATIP rules, Mr. Chair.

Yes, we do. It's “provided that the government does its assessment and vetting in gathering and releasing the documents as it would be done through the access to information process”.

We are following the same procedure, Mr. Chair, as prior health committee requests for the production of documents. This is the same amendment that was passed with both production of document motions by the committee on June 15.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Chair, I just want to remind all members what we are here to talk about. We're not here to try to score political points. We are here to help Canadians. As was the case in February, the same language was used to respect the privacy of Canadians. Just keep that in mind. I think my motion is absolutely what we want from them. The main thrust is that we want information. That information is what we should focus on.
Again, I want to remind everyone that this is the 33rd meeting. We work together. Let's focus on Canadians, not on scoring political points.
Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to echo what my colleague Darren said. I still prefer our subamendment, because it protects Canadians' rights, so I want to go with ours.
