Lib. (NB)
Thank you, Mr. St-Denis and Mr. MacGregor.
Unfortunately, that's all the time we have for this panel. I want to thank the Canadian Cattlemen's Association, Mr. Stadnicki and Mr. Christie; the Quebec Produce Growers Association, Mr. Terrault and Mr. St-Denis; and as an individual, Mr. Justin Jenner, beef and grain producer.
Members, please stay on so we can look at our draft letter, version three, and make sure it's ready to go. You've all received a copy of it from our analyst, made some corrections and modifications. Are there any further comments or is that the final version we want to send Minister Bibeau?
Go ahead, Mr. Perron.

That gives an okay to the letter.

Please remain on, members, and we'll just move on into our business.
What we need to do today is approve the subcommittee report that was sent to you earlier today and that briefly summarizes the discussions we had Wednesday evening.
You've all had a chance to look at the report. We just need your blessing on that as the main committee. Are we good with that report from the subcommittee? Does anybody have any issues?
It looks like we're all good on that, and the main focus of the meeting is also to provide direction to the analysts to prepare a draft letter on BRM. We agreed to set aside an hour this coming Wednesday—

Lib. (NB)
No. A report has been drafted for all the committee members. It contains the subcommittee's recommendations.
Do you have it?

Lib. (NB)
I have the English version.
It says:
Our subcommittee met on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, to consider the business of the committee and agreed to make the following recommendations:
1. That, in relation to the study of business risk management programs:
a. the Chair propose a summer sitting calendar for July, August and September, for the consideration of the committee at the next regularly scheduled meeting, taking into account that meetings in July will be scheduled after July 3;
b. that the meeting of Wednesday, June 17, 2020, will have one hour of scheduled witness testimony and one hour of committee business for the consideration of the draft letter to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food; and
c. the letter for the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food be sent in carbon copy to all provincial ministers of agriculture.
It's very short. That was basically—

Do you want to discuss the report?

Lib. (NB)
I believe that everyone has received the schedule.

Lib. (NB)
First, we will vote to adopt the report. I can come back to the schedule if you like, Mr. Perron.

Lib. (NB)
If there are no further questions, I would like to have everyone's consent or support on the recommendations presented in the subcommittee's report.
Do we all agree on the subcommittee's recommendations?
I think everybody is good.
(Motion agreed to)
The Chair: For the calendar, we have looked at the different dates. Again, there are a lot more meetings that perhaps might not happen because we have to review a different draft. If it takes us one or two meetings, the last couple of meetings might not need to happen, but we've put enough meetings in there so that we will have a final version of the report ready to table at the opening of Parliament on September 21. Looking at the calendar, that's what we have come up with.
Again, if we can approve it more quickly, it would mean fewer meetings, but that's basically what we have to present to the whips so that they can take care of the logistics.
Mr. MacGregor, you're first. Go ahead.

Lib. (NB)
Yes, I would assume so. We don't want to get you up at three in the morning, hopefully. I know it's a bit different across the country.
Do those hours work for you, Mr. MacGregor?
View Pat Finnigan Profile
Lib. (NB)
Yes. I think that's what we'll strive for. Again, it will depend on the whips and the logistics, but I think that's what we'll strive to do.
Monsieur Perron.

Thank you, Mr. Perron.
The problem is that there is work to be done in between each of the report's versions. For instance, the committee's recommendations must be corrected by the analysts, they must be translated, and so on. So it is difficult to have all those meetings so close together. That is why we spread them out.
