Yes, we have that. I will continue with that. Thank you.
I need a mover for motion one:
That the committee retain, as needed and at the discretion of the joint chairs, the services of one or more analysts from the Library of Parliament to assist it in its work.

Thank you, Mr. Virani.
(Motion agreed to)
The Joint Chair (Hon. Yonah Martin): If I may, Madam Joint Chair, I have a brief bio of each of the analysts, Julia Nicol and Marlisa Tiedemann, for everyone to see.
If Julia and Marlisa would turn on their video, I'll have a brief bio of each of them just to show the experience they bring to our committee.
Marlisa Tiedemann is a lawyer who has been an analyst and manager with the Library of Parliament since 2004. She has worked primarily in health law and indigenous affairs. She has worked on end-of-life issues throughout her career, including supporting the 2016 Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying and she has written various publications on the topic. As a manager, she has supervised the team that works on social development-related issues, including disability-related issues.
Julia Nicol is a lawyer who works as an analyst in the justice and national security section and has worked at the Library of Parliament since 2009. She works primarily in criminal law, human rights, gender and foreign affairs, and has written a number of publications about medical assistance in dying. She has supported a variety of House of Commons and Senate committees, including the 2016 Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying, as well as the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly. She has also worked for Health Canada on medical assistance in dying.
We have two very capable analysts who will be working with us.

Now we come to the second motion. Do I have a mover for motion two?
I see Mr. Virani's hand is up, so I will read the motion:
That the Subcommittee on Agenda and Procedure be composed of the joint chairs and the vice-chairs; and that the subcommittee work in a spirit of collaboration.
(Motion agreed to)
The Joint Chair (Hon. Hedy Fry): If this motion is adopted, as you have just done, the steering committee would be composed of one Senate joint chair, one Senate vice-chair, one House joint chair and three House vice-chairs. The total steering members will be six.
Is everyone in agreement with that?
Senator Kutcher.

May I ask a question, Chair?
I wonder if it would be reasonable to have an additional senator join that committee.

Lib. (BC)
It would seem to me to be reasonable, because both Senator Martin and I would not be able to vote when we make those decisions. There may need to be another senator carrying a vote, other than Senator Mégie, and similarly for the House.

Thank you, Dr. Fry.
I'd like to nominate Senator Kutcher for that position.

Are there any other nominations?
Is everyone in agreement that Senator Kutcher will become that other person?
Some hon. members: Agreed.

Lib. (BC)
Everyone agrees.
Then I think it may be prudent to do the same for the House.
Does anyone want to nominate a person in the House who is not a vice-chair but is going to be taking a vote? It will have to be a Liberal, because I would be chairing and not voting.

Did you say there would be one additional member from the House or would there be another Conservative member as well? Would there be two additional members?
I don't know if MP Kerry-Lynne FIndlay has a similar question or if it is a nomination, but I was just trying to get clarification on the additional members from the House.

I think, because in my instance the chair would not be able to vote, we would need to have a member of my party carrying the vote for me. That would be a Liberal, I suppose.
Is somebody going to nominate someone?

Is everyone in agreement with it being Mr. Virani?

I hear no dissenting comment.
Thank you very much.
Now we have a steering committee that is going to be made up of eight members. It includes one Senate joint chair, one Senate vice-chair, one House joint chair, three House vice-chairs, and one person from the House and one person from the Senate. The person from the House is Mr. Virani and the person from the Senate is Dr. Kutcher.
Yonah, do you want to do the next round?
