On a point of order—

I would like to ask the question of relevance. This is related perhaps to the intention of the original motion, but it is unrelated to Ms. Dabrusin's amendment that is now on the floor. There is no link whatsoever between this and what Ms. Dabrusin proposed as an amendment.

On a point of order, Mr. Chair, on relevance, Ms. Dabrusin's amendment does not speak to removing the charter statement that is being requested, but now we're debating whether a charter statement is required or not.

I have a point of order.
Mr. Chairman, I would again come back to the fact that this is entirely unrelated to Ms. Dabrusin's amendment. We are now speaking to Ms. Dabrusin's amendment. I appreciate the latitude, but this is now going far afield.

A point of order, Mr. Chair.
Of course, Mr. Chair, you probably know more about this than we do, and the clerk could certainly enlighten us, but it seems to me that in a debate like this, when a member starts repeating the same ideas over and over again, we can raise a point of order and ask them to come back to the topic being debated. I think Ms. Harder has clearly stated her ideas and arguments previously, and she is starting to repeat the same things. I think it's time to step in, Mr. Chair.

There is no interpretation in French right now.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
The previous speaker talked about respect. One thing that I've been very proud of as a member of this committee is that, until today, I found that the members of this committee showed incredible respect toward one another. There was never a time where someone asked to withdraw an amendment and unanimous consent was not granted.
What happened today was that Ms. Harder refused to grant unanimous consent for Ms. Dabrusin to withdraw an amendment that Ms. Harder is actually against, and then she proceeded to speak for an entire hour, wasting the time of the committee. We're not even going to get to the motion that Ms. Harder put before us because there's an amendment from Ms. Dabrusin that Ms. Dabrusin doesn't even want us to debate any longer. It's totally not acceptable.
Mr. Chair, I'm sorry. I'm very disappointed, and because I feel that this will just continue perpetually—and there's no purpose in debating Ms. Dabrusin's amendment because she does not even want it debated—I move to adjourn debate on Ms. Dabrusin's amendment.

Mr. Chair, a point of order.

Either the interpretation was not good or there was some confusion. What I understood when I voted was that Mr. Housefather had asked to adjourn debate on Ms. Dabrusin's motion in amendment, not to adjourn debate on Ms. Harder's motion as amended by Ms. McPherson. Could you check?
One thing is clear to me: I did not vote to adjourn debate on Ms. Harder's motion.

No, Mr. Chair. I would like to see the “blues” if necessary, but Mr. Housefather moved to adjourn debate on Ms. Dabrusin's motion in amendment. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I want you to check, because that was my understanding and I voted accordingly.
Perhaps Mr. Housefather can confirm exactly what he said. When the clerk repeated that it was about adjourning the debate on the motion, I understood that it was about what Mr. Housefather himself had requested, which was to adjourn the debate on Ms. Dabrusin's motion in amendment. So can we allow Mr. Housefather to confirm what he said?
I do not think I am mistaken in saying that I did hear Mr. Housefather say that he wanted to end debate on Ms. Dabrusin's motion in amendment. He wanted to ask to adjourn debate on Ms. Dabrusin's motion in amendment.

I'm happy to do so.
I can do so in French.

Mr. Rayes, you're quite right that I moved to adjourn the debate on Ms. Dabrusin's amendment. However, just afterwards, before the vote, the clerk said that this motion to adjourn the debate on the amendment would adjourn the debate on the motion. Since you voted against my motion—and I guess you would have voted against anything—I don't see what difference that makes.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.
