Thank you, Madam Chair.
First, how many witnesses will be speaking?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
MP Kwan has agreed with your proposal. I also agree, but I would suggest that we give each witness a minimum of five minutes and a maximum of 10 minutes. That will give them time to get their points across.

Thank you for being with us today, Minister Lametti and the Right Honourable Kim Campbell. This is a historic nomination for the country. Ms. Campbell, having been the first female prime minister of this country, knows what history is like. This is a historic day that the first person of colour is being nominated to the Supreme Court of Canada.
I understand that it's up to the candidate to self-identify as a minority, and that during the process that led to the appointment of our most recent Supreme Court justice, there were no self-identified minorities. Besides the nominee that we have here today, Mr. Justice Jamal, were there many other self-identified minorities amongst the candidates?
That's for the Right Honourable Kim Campbell.

Thank you, Ms. Campbell. Is there a criterion for adding different endeavours and perspectives to the Supreme Court, and how much is the background of the current judges taken into consideration when looking at nominee candidates?

Thank you, Professor Lemmens. I think we have come to the end of that time.
There are bells ringing in the House for votes, but we have had unanimous consent to continue for 20 minutes, so we will have 10 minutes in which to vote.
Right now I'm looking at the bells. I just wanted to give you a heads up, everyone, so you know what's going on. We have 24 minutes left and the bells. It means we have 12 minutes for the second round.
Given that Senator Martin has left, I will go to the second round quickly. That second round will begin with Mr. Arseneault, for three minutes. That includes questions and answers, so be mindful, those who are answering as well. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Lemmens. I think we're out of time. We have two more questioners here.
We have Monsieur Thériault for two minutes.
Monsieur Thériault, please.

Thank you, Professor Downie.
I now go to Ms. Kwan for two minutes, please, for the question and the answer.

Thank you very much to both witnesses, Professor Lemmens and Professor Downie.
We said we would leave so that we have 10 minutes to vote. We are now coming up to those 10 minutes. We're going to have bells coming up again very, very soon, so I think it may well be that we will have little time to come to our second hour.
To the two clerks, I am very sorry that we have witnesses lined up to speak, but this is the nature of the beast at the moment with votes.
I want to thank the witnesses for coming. I want to thank everyone for being respectful with their questions, and I want to say that I think this meeting should now be adjourned.
Thank you very much.

I am told by the whips' offices that there is going to be another set of bells coming up very soon. I think it's at eight o'clock that we will have bells. That means that's going to be another set of votes, and we just won't have the time....
I am so sorry. I would love to continue, but resources have to begin again. People have been waiting for an 8:30 end to committee.
I am so sorry, Ms. Findlay. I would love to continue with this.
I want to thank you all again.
I think we may have to talk to each other soon, because we're not going to be having another meeting. We may have to contact each other with regard to the decisions we made on other issues.
Thank you very much.
Goodbye, everybody.

It's not even 15 minutes. As long as the whip shows up, that's it.
Ms. Kwan is perfectly right.
