I call this meeting to order. Welcome to meeting number 38 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
Today we have MP Alice Wong, who's replacing Mr. Moore for the first hour.
Welcome, Ms. Wong. It's great to have you on our committee today.
As members know, we'll be continuing our study on the Canadian Victims Bill of Rights.
We welcome our witnesses who are here today. As a note for the witnesses, interpretation services are available with the globe icon at the bottom of your screen. Please select the language that you would like to listen to. You can speak in either official language.
Before we go to our witnesses today, we would like to pass the operational budget for these hearings. The budget, which was distributed to all members yesterday, is in the amount of $2,550. It will serve to pay for our expenses for this current study.
Do I have the approval of everyone?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
The Chair: Wonderful. Thank you, everyone.
I know we're still waiting for Mr. Niemi from the Center for Research-Action on Race Relations, but we have present today, Kids with Incarcerated Parents Canada, represented by Jessica Reid, who is the executive director of programming and research. We also have the Canadian Bar Association, represented by Jody Berkes, who is chair of the criminal justice section.
I keep time for everyone, for the witnesses and for members. I have a one-minute card and a 30-second card that will allow you to track yourselves with your opening statements, as well as your questioning.
With that, we'll go to Jessica Reid for five minutes for opening remarks before we carry on.
Please go ahead. Your time starts now.

Thank you very much for that, Mr. Berkes. You didn't go too much over time, and I appreciate that.
I've just been notified that the Center for Research-Action on Race Relations, represented by Mr. Niemi, will not be able to make it to the committee today. Mr. Niemi has offered to send in his speaking notes. Now, if members agree, we can append those to today's evidence.
I'll see a thumbs-up if that's okay with members.
That's great. Thank you, everyone, for your understanding and your co-operation.
Now we'll go into our first round of questions. I believe we are starting with Mr. Lewis this morning, for six minutes.
Go ahead, Mr. Lewis.

Thank you for that, Mr. Fortin.
Mr. Clerk, are we having any challenges with the sound or the interpretation?

Lib. (ON)
Perhaps we can first try again.
Ms. Reid, please repeat your answer, speaking very loudly and clearly. I'm sure there's a boom on your headset. Try again, please.

Was that okay, Mr. Fortin? I heard the interpretation coming through that time.

Yes, so the technician—

I understand. The technician will be getting in touch with Ms. Reid.
Next I have Mr. Maloney.
Mr. Maloney, do you have specific questions for Ms. Reid to start off with?

Lib. (ON)
That's an excellent suggestion, Madam Findlay.
Ms. Reid, do you want to try a sound test? Speak as loud as you can.

Lib. (ON)
I think we're going to hand you off to the experts, who are better at this than we are. Maybe one of our technicians can call you.
We'll suspend for two minutes while we figure this out.
Don't go too far, folks.

Thank you, Mr. Garrison.
We'll go into our second round and I am cognizant of the time. We have six minutes remaining in the first hour, and I understand that we have a very hard stop at 1:00 p.m. because of committee restrictions. What I would like to do is perhaps divide those remaining six minutes into one question per party, if members are okay with that.
We'll start with Ms. Wong.
Please go ahead.
