Welcome, everybody, to the 30th meeting of the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage.
Of course, when we left off at the last meeting, there was an adjournment put forward by Mr. Shields. Therefore, we follow the dots and go back to clause-by-clause consideration.
Before we do that, I would like to point out that I see a multitude of hands in the air, so I'm going to take this in order.
Ms. Harder.

Is that the one as amended?

You are correct.
Let's get right to it since it's a dilatory motion.
(Motion agreed to: yeas 11; nays 0)
The Chair: Okay, folks, I did not get a chance to say this at the beginning, but I want everyone to know. From the point of view of proceeding with this debate, I ask that you please try not to talk over each other. I really try my best to make sure that Hansard is able to recognize who's speaking. On top of that, the fact that we are in a virtual world makes it very difficult.
I ask that if you want to be involved, please do not shout into your microphone. If you feel your electronic hand isn't enough, you can wave at the screen if you wish, but when you yell into the microphone, somebody's ear is right there. They are the interpreters, and this isn't an easy world for them to be wading through.
The amended motion is on the floor. We have an amendment put forward by Madam Dabrusin, which is where we left off last time.
Madam Dabrusin.

My understanding is that it goes back to where we left off. I believe she had the floor.
I'm going to get Aimée for clarification on this one.

Okay.
In the meantime, I hope everybody's doing well. In this virtual world we live in, it's great to see everybody. It's very good to see you. This is late in the evening for us here on this happy little island we call Newfoundland, and I'm so happy to see everybody. It's just fantastic.
This goes back to the days when I auditioned for a Vegas act several years ago. It never worked out for me, so I became a politician instead. I have no idea how to fill this gap. As you can see, I'm failing at it miserably.
I see Mr. Manly is there. Mr. Manly, did you have a chance to do a sound check?

Lib. (NL)
Yes, I'm sure we would. You know what? I'm going to have to call division on that one. As interested as we may be, I may have to call back the clerk to do a sound check.

I think we may as well go straight to debate, and when Mr. Manly comes up we'll try to do the sound check as it occurs in real time.

Thank you, Ms. Dabrusin. Let's get to that right away.
Just for clarification, everyone, what Ms. Dabrusin is asking for is unanimous consent to withdraw her amendment. We all remember her amendment. It's been shared by the clerk, so we don't have to go over that. If I get someone dissenting, please say no.
Does Ms. Dabrusin have unanimous consent to withdraw her amendment?

Following through on debate, carry on.

From what I can glean thus far, she's not proposing an amendment yet. She's talking about her current amendment in that particular context.
As I say, she's not moving anything at this point, but we're free and open to debate so I'm going to let her proceed.

Ms. Dabrusin, I'm going to ask you to hold on for one second. I'll hear Ms. Harder on a point of order.

Lib. (NL)
Thank you, Ms. Harder, for the intervention.
You're not moving a motion right now, Ms. Dabrusin. Are you?
View Scott Simms Profile
Lib. (NL)
That's fine. The only thing I'd caution everyone on is to try to keep this on track. It's hard to follow as it is, in this world that we live in, because it's virtual and all of those things. We have several amendments on the move.
I appreciate the fact that you're not moving a motion right now, and you're talking about further debate. Let's try to keep it as narrow as we can towards what we're debating.
Ms. Dabrusin, once again you have the floor.

Just so that we're clear, we already sought unanimous consent. That did not happen, so we're currently still at your original amendment, which we left off with on Friday.
Ms. Harder.
