Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thanks to our witnesses for their opening comments and for being available to the committee.
I want to ask Ms. Gillis a question about the recommendation in the Auditor General's report that better monitoring and tracking would be implemented for project delays. At the time the report from the Auditor General was presented, it was highlighted that there were significant delays across the program delivery and that there was no tracking of the effects of those delays.
I want to know if the department counts how long it takes for a project to be approved from the time it hits the minister's desk. Does the department capture that data? When the clock starts ticking, once the municipal and provincial levels have approved a project and submitted it to the government, does the department track how long it takes for a decision to be made on those applications?

How long has the department been providing that kind of tracking service? Is that since the Auditor General's report or does that predate the Auditor General's report?

In terms of tracking the effects of delays, what's the progress been for the department to start to include measures to capture that impact?

Thank you very much.
I have a question for the representative from CMHC.
I believe you mentioned in your opening comments that CMHC manages approximately $32 billion in funds. Am I correct in that number?

In terms of allocating funding for housing projects from CMHC, what is the ratio between funding that's delivered from the consolidated revenue fund from the government versus funds that you collect from mortgage holders who are paying CMHC premiums?

Thanks very much.
I have a quick question for Ms. Fox.
You mentioned that some of the legacy program funding was being used to pay for things like utility bills. That left me with the impression that a program that was designed to build infrastructure is being used to perhaps pay ongoing operating costs.
Is that the case with some of the legacy program funding?

Were those original legacy programs designed to allow for funding for...?
When people think of infrastructure projects they think of infrastructure funding. I certainly didn't expect that funding intended to be used to upgrade facilities—to improve access to clean water or waste water—would be used to pay for things like utility bills or operating costs.

In the interest of the committee's time, I'll cede my time.

I have a point of order, Madam Chair.

I just wonder if there might be agreement for the rest of the clauses, instead of recorded divisions—just to test the will of the committee—if we might adopt them on division. If somebody isn't enthusiastically supportive, maybe we could just do them on division.

Or at least one by one—if you want to go through them one by one—rather than recorded divisions, just on division if somebody objects....

Thank you very much, Madam Chair.
There were certainly a lot of allegations made at the time of the protests that have since been debunked. A lot of inflammatory language used by certain politicians and the corporate media to try to characterize these protests into something that they weren't, and a lot of those types of allegations have also been debunked.
Many politicians and many media observers used the term “occupation”, in that Parliament Hill was occupied or that the protesters were occupying the precinct or parts of Ottawa.
I just wanted to clarify that, because that's a particularly precise word with a lot of meaning behind it.
Monsieur Duheme, are you aware of any parliamentary buildings that were occupied by protesters?

To Chief Bell, are you aware of any buildings near the parliamentary precinct that were occupied, where protesters entered buildings and occupied them?

It's also important to use precise language, because the parliamentary precinct is very specifically defined and the word “occupation” means something very specific.
I have one more question on this line, Mr. Duheme. Were you aware or did anybody in the Parliamentary Protective Service give you any indication that protesters were preventing access to any of the parliamentary buildings during the protest?
