Welcome to the 12th meeting of the Board of Internal Economy of the 44th legislature.
We'll start off with the minutes of the previous meeting. Are there any questions or comments?
Mr. Brassard, you have the floor.

Are there any other comments on the minutes of the previous meeting?
Since no one has any questions or comments, let us move on to the second item, business arising from the previous meeting.
Is there anything that we want to bring up?
Everything is clear? Perfect.
Now we'll go to number three.
The third item is the LTVP working group.
The presenters this morning will be Mr. Chris d'Entremont, who is the chair of the working group on the LTVP and the Centre Block rehabilitation; Mr. Rob Wright, assistant deputy minister, science and parliamentary infrastructure branch, Public Services and Procurement Canada; and Darrell de Grandmont, director of the Centre Block program.
Who will be presenting?

Okay.
Mr. d'Entremont, you have the floor.

Very good.
Are there any questions or comments?
We'll start with Mr. Julian and then go over to Mr. Brassard.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Very good.
Mr. Julian, are you all done? Okay.
Now we'll go on to Mr. Brassard, followed by Mr. MacKinnon.

It's Mr. MacKinnon, followed by Mr. Julian.

I think Mr. d'Entremont would like to say something.
View Anthony Rota Profile

Go ahead, Mr. Julian.

Lib. (ON)
That is for the members of the Board of Internal Economy to decide.
Do we want to suspend and go to vote, or do we want to vote on our phones and continue with this?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
I believe we want to go to the chamber.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Okay.
If everyone agrees, we will suspend the meeting until the vote is completed. We will then resume after the vote. Please join our meeting once the vote is completed.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
We're going to resume the meeting.
I believe there were some questions being asked.
Mr. Julian, you were in the middle of one.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Thank you.
Are there any other questions or comments?
If not, I have a question.
I'm not sure whether this is more a question of management than of design. We now have a shuttle system on the Hill that operates on a daily basis. Would that shuttle system be needed if we had the tunnels? If we don't need it, what is the cost on an annual basis of operating those shuttles, both in replacement costs for the shuttles and in operations, not only in fuel but in human resources?
Michel, go ahead.

Mr. d'Entremont, go ahead.

It's interesting that you should mention that, because my next question has to do with moving sidewalks like the ones they have in airports. Is that something being considered?

Lib. (ON)
Yes, of course. It might be hydrogen by then. I don't know.
Are there any more questions or comments? I think we're done.
I want to thank both of you for being here today and for putting up with the vote.
I just want to make a comment. Bruce Stanton was the epitome of a Deputy Speaker. When he left, I thought, boy, this is going to be tough to replace. I want to say, Mr. d'Entremont, that you have been doing a wonderful job both on this committee and as Deputy Speaker.
I understand that you have an anniversary coming up as well for 25 years of service.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Thank you for your years of service, and your years of service here on the Hill.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Thank you very much.
Now we'll go in camera. Do we have consensus on the recommendation to proceed?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
The Chair: Very good.
We will take a few minutes to go in camera.
The meeting is suspended.

I call the meeting to order.
Welcome to the eleventh meeting of the Board of Internal Economy of the 44th Parliament.
We'll start off with the minutes of the previous meeting.
We have a point of order, or a request from Mrs. DeBellefeuille.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Do we have everyone's agreement?
Mr. Brassard would like to speak
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Mrs. DeBellefeuille, is this acceptable?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
That's fine.
Go ahead, Mr. Julian.

Mr. Holland, you have the floor.

Go ahead, Mr. Brassard.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Do we have consent to adopt the new order, which would be item number 8 followed by number 7, and then over to number 4 and then to number 9?
Does that make sense? Did I read that correctly?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
I see.
I had understood that we would meet in camera at first, but we can—
Mr. Brassard, you have the floor.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
I guess what I'm looking for is direction.
First of all, do we agree on the change, and what will that change be? Do we go the public route first and then over to the in camera route, or vice versa? I'm hearing different stories.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Okay. That's what I had heard.
Is that acceptable?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Mr. Holland is shaking his head.
No...?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Are we okay to start with numbers 4 and 9 and then come back in camera?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Mrs. DeBellefeuille, you have the floor.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Very well.
I think we're all in agreement to ask that the Sergeant‑at‑Arms give a report at the next meeting, which is next Thursday.
We will start with item 8 on the agenda.
I'm sorry. We're going to go in camera first.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
I'm sorry. That's my mistake.
We've gone back and forth so many times I got confused.
That's fine. We'll start with number 4: “Cost Pressures on Members' Budgets”.
Mr. St George and Mr. Fernandez will make their presentation.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Realistically, Mr. d'Entremont, if you don't mind coming back at our next meeting...?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
We apologize for bringing you out.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Thank you.
Thank you for bringing that up, Mr. Julian. That's a good point.
While we're still public, do we want to cover item number 2?
This item pertains to business arising from the previous meeting.
Everything is okay? Good. We've done one. We've done two.
Now we'll go to number 4: “Cost Pressures on Members' Budgets”.
Mr. St George, you have the floor.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Are there any questions or comments?
We'll have Mr. MacKinnon, followed by Mr. Julian.
Mr. MacKinnon.

Lib. (ON)
Perfect.
Now we'll go to Mr. Julian, followed by Mr. Calkins and then over to Mr. Brassard.
Mr. Julian.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Do we have consensus on requesting that from Mr. St George? I believe we do.
Mrs. DeBellefeuille, you have the floor.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
No, not at all. We're asking Mr. St George to submit a report so we can determine if there will be other solutions in the future.
We're good with that.
Now we'll go to Mr. Calkins, followed by Mr. Brassard.
Then it will be Mrs. DeBellefeuille's turn.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Oh, I'm sorry. Go ahead.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
What exactly are we saying here? We're not asking for a report, or we are, or there's a problem with asking for some kind of examination?
Go ahead, Mr. MacKinnon.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Very good.
We'll continue....
Mr. Brassard, did you want to add to that?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
—would take care of in camera, along with number seven?
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
I think that would be a more appropriate place for it.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
It seems like it would fit better in item number seven, which is our fourth item.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
I think the argument's already been made, and it seems like there's some consensus, so we'll move on and get back to that one in a second.
Right now, we have Mr. Calkins, followed by Mr. Brassard
Then it will be Mrs. DeBellefeuille's turn.
Go ahead, Mr. Calkins.

There's no interpretation, apparently, due to the quality of the sound.

That's good. Please proceed.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Monsieur George or Monsieur Patrice can take that.
I believe Mr. Patrice wants to take this question.
View Anthony Rota Profile
Lib. (ON)
Then what we are doing is this. I seem to have consensus on the recommendations, and we will be coming back with a report. The staff will be coming back with a report on the office costs, possibly looking at the B.C. model.
From there, the other issues will be looked at on a separate basis, so we are good.
Very good, we'll continue then with item number 9, “Professional Development Project and Training for Members' Employees”.
I believe Ms. Daigle will be making the presentation. Am I correct?
Yes, okay, we'll let Ms. Daigle continue, and Ms. Laframboise will be there as well.

Is there a date you want to suggest?

You're suggesting the end of the year.
Does that sound good to everyone?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
Hon. Anthony Rota: Okay. We'll come back with it before the end of the year. Very good.
Ms. Daigle, on behalf of the board, thank you very much for your service. I wish you all the best. I'm very happy you're not leaving the Hill. You're still going to be within arm's reach—I should say “arm's length”—if we need you. You are leaving a void, but we wish you all the best in your new endeavour.
Thank you.
