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?

Madam Chair, I think we should continue to accept briefs until these hearings conclude.

Okay. Thank you. That was the direction I needed.
Are there any members who want to say something?

I have a point of order, Madam Chair.

Just give us one second, Mr. Moore. We're just dealing with a technical challenge here.
Thank you very much for that.
Just to clarify what Mr. Cooper said, the written briefs for Bill C-7 should be allowed until the end of our consideration of clause-by-clause. Is that correct, Mr. Cooper?

Actually, I don't see any reason briefs couldn't continue to be submitted even after.

Okay. Does anybody have any—

I don't know that I have a specific date, other than to say that we should continue to allow briefs to be submitted to the committee for our benefit. Even after clause-by-clause, if it's going back to the House, I don't know that there would be any prejudice in.... Why would there be any issue with briefs continuing to be submitted for members to reference?

Specifically, the briefs we're talking about are in reference to Bill C-7.

Once a brief is submitted to the clerk, there's a whole process of translation that also has to happen.

Yes, I understand that, but I guess at this point I'm just suggesting we allow maximum flexibility.

Right, and that's exactly why everybody voted in support of your motion at the last meeting. The question from the clerk was whether there was going to be an end date to the briefs that were submitted on Bill C-7.
Mr. Moore, is that on this question?

No, Madam Chair, it's on another matter.

Okay.
Then we'll go to Mr. Virani, if that's okay.
