Good evening or afternoon, everyone. I call this meeting to order. This is the 10th meeting for the House of Commons Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
For some very quick housekeeping, if members would like to speak, please unmute yourself. If you're not speaking, please make sure that you're on mute. When you are speaking, please speak slowly and clearly so that's there's no lag in interpretation.
We'll get right into it. We have our witnesses, as we consider clause-by-clause for Bill C-7, from the Department of Justice and the Department of Health. Members are obviously welcome to ask questions of them. I will name them very quickly. We have Carole Morency, Joanne Klineberg and Caroline Quesnel. They are from the Department of Justice. From the Department of Health, we have Abby Hoffman, Sharon Harper and Karen Kusch.
Very quickly, before we go into clause-by-clause of Bill C-7, there was a question that the clerk had asked me with respect to Mr. Cooper's motion to allow for briefs past the November 12 deadline. I am seeking clarity from members as to when we should stop receiving briefs. Right now we don't have an end date.
Mr. Cooper, would you like to speak to that?
