I will call the meeting to order.
Thank you, all, for coming today.
I will skip over the usual pleasantries and try to accelerate the process here, because we're running 15 minutes behind and we're tight for time. We have three 40-minute segments in this meeting, the third of which is the clause-by-clause, which we would like to complete today.
In the second segment, we have with us our minister, who is supposed to be joining us at 11:40 for 40 minutes.
Our first panel, of course, is here with us, consisting of the Newfoundland and Labrador Oil and Gas Industries Association and Charlene Johnson. We also have Unifor local 2121 and Mr. Dave Mercer.
Each of you is given up to five minutes to speak. You can speak in French and/or English. Translation is available, as we know by now.
I will jump right in.
Ms. Johnson, why don't you start us off for five minutes, please?

Thank you very much.
We will move on to Mr. Mercer.
I was remiss at the beginning in forgetting to welcome Mr. Harris.
Thank you for joining us today.

We can hear you. We can't see you, though.

Mr. Mercer, I'm going to have to ask you to wrap up if you can, please.

Thank you, Mr. Mercer, and to both of our witnesses.
We're going to start with Mr. McLean. We'll go through one round of six-minute questions here, and then we'll move into the second panel.
Mr. McLean, we go over to you.

Thank you very much.
Thank you both for coming before this committee today. I apologize on behalf of all of the government that we're late in getting to this.
I want to talk about that gap that exists at this point in time, and I'll ask you both. Can you tell me how this four-month gap between when the regulations ended in December 2020 and now, or when we pass this bill—which hopefully will be as soon as possible—is affecting the workers and your industry? I'd like to hear from both of you on that.

Go ahead.

Thank you.
I know these regulations had to go through the provincial legislatures as well, and they didn't seem to receive that much of a delay. Somehow at the federal level it's taken six years since the bill was introduced in Parliament and we're still dealing with retroactive legislation in order to make this pertinent for the period during which it has lapsed.
What's taking the federal government so long when the two provincial governments seemed to get through a little more quickly? Either or both of you can answer.

Mr. Mercer, do you have anything to add?

Thanks, Mr. Mercer and Mr. McLean.
I'm going to stick very close to the timelines here, guys, so that we can try to get everything in.
Ms. Jones is up next, assuming her headset is working. If it's not, then I believe Mr. Lefebvre will go ahead.

Mr. Chair, I still don't have my headset. IT is working on the remote access to my computer. I may have to pass this to MP Lefebvre.
