I will call this meeting to order.
I apologize. Everybody's sound is great and I forgot to bring my headset with me today. If you can't hear the translation, please let me know. I'll try to speak right into the laptop, loud and slow.
Welcome to meeting number 22 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food. Pursuant to the motion adopted by the House of Commons on Tuesday, May 26, the committee is meeting to consider a request received by the clerk and submitted by four members of the committee. This request was made to discuss support measures for Canadian poultry and egg farmers.
I have just a few notes here. When you intervene, please make sure that your language channel is set to the language that you intend to speak, not the floor. This is very important. It will reduce the number of times we need to stop because the interpretation is inaudible for our participants, and it will maximize the time we spend exchanging with each other.
Also, before speaking, please wait until I recognize you by name. When you are ready to speak, you can click on the microphone icon to activate your mike.
Make sure that your microphone is off when you are not talking.
We are now ready to begin.
Members have all received the letter and had a chance to look at the meeting request. Perhaps at this stage I will open the floor.
I don't know, Mr. Barlow, if you want to talk about the motion or actually move the motion so that we can discuss it. I'll let you explain your request.

Thank you very much, Mr. Barlow.
We'll open the floor.
I just want to remind members that if they wish to speak, they can use the “raise hand” function at the bottom right-hand side so it is easier to keep track.
I see Mr. Hoback has his hand raised. Would you like to speak to this, Mr. Hoback?

Thank you, Mr. Barlow.
Again, we can look at that. Another thing we could do, if the committee wanted, would be to have a long meeting of four hours, or maybe two three-hour meetings. There are different ways we can do this to maybe save one meeting. I'm just throwing that out there.
Mr. Perron, you have the floor.

Thank you, Mr. Perron.
Could I ask everybody to make sure they're on mute when they're not speaking? We're hearing some background noise.
Mr. Lehoux, you have the floor.

Thank you, Mr. Barlow.
Yes, I can certainly work with the clerk on that. Everybody would have to send their lists of witnesses. It's not going to be a very long list, but we need some witnesses for the clerk to work with. I imagine we could set a date as a deadline to have that list submitted. Today is Wednesday. What about tomorrow or Friday? Do you think we could get that list before the end of the day tomorrow or Friday?

I didn't see your hand. I'm sorry about that. I saw Mr. Perron.
Go ahead, Mr. MacGregor.

Thank you, Mr. MacGregor.
As I said, I think everybody knows who they want to see as witnesses at this meeting, so maybe we should just make sure that we have that list right now. As you say, definitely there was the minister, and I think Mr. Drouin suggested the four organizations.

Okay.
As for the others, the growers or processors, you can forward them to me by tomorrow, if you wish.
Mr. Perron, did you raise your hand?

Lib. (NB)
Yes, go ahead, please.

Mr. Perron, when the minister is here, you will be free to ask your question on any subject you choose. Does that work for you?
