Order. We are now in the public session of the Board of Internal Economy meeting. We will go to the next item, which is the minutes of the previous meeting. Are they approved?
Go ahead, Mr. Strahl.

Thank you very much.
Is there anything else?
With that information—

With that presentation, then, can we say the minutes are approved?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
Hon. Geoff Regan: Thank you very much.
The next item is business arising from the previous meeting. Is there anything arising from the previous meeting?
Some hon. members: No.
Hon. Geoff Regan: Thank you.
Now we're at the seventh item on the agenda: the update from the members' working group on the LTVP.
We have quite a group here to present on that. Is it Ms. Sgro who will lead off?

Do we have copies of the presentation available for members?

We have something. However, it doesn't include the list that you were starting to read. It sounded as though it would be a good list for us to have.

Yes, the guiding principles. We'd better let you carry on.

Before I go to Ms. Block, this is listed on the agenda as an update. To what degree are you looking for a decision from the board?
Ms. Block had her hand up.

Thank you.
We will go to Mr. Julian and then Ms. Bergen.
Wait, it's Monsieur Rodriguez. Let's not be confused about that.
I apologize.

Ms. Bergen is next.

Ms. Bergen, I think you've perceived the role precisely. You've stated accurately and exactly what it was intended to be.
I see Monsieur Patrice, and I don't know if Mr. Wright wants to comment as well to give the perspectives of the administration and of PSPC.

Then are you saying it's a way to ensure that members are involved and are being consulted as the process goes forward and the construction proceeds? Do I read you correctly as suggesting that the board ought to be inserting itself by giving its—I don't know if the word I want is “decision”—own input into certain aspects of this?

I see. We're the ones that state the requirements of the House of Commons, right?

Lib. (NS)
Can we compare that to what the role of PSPC is, and the executive?

I'm sorry to interject, but with regard to the Senate, we've talked here about the board's expressing what the House's requirements are. Does the Senate's own committee—I forget the name of the committee, but it's comparable to this one—do the same thing? Is there an aspect of the space that we're talking about that relates to the needs of the Senate as opposed to the House, or is it more parliamentary, and both are considered together?

Ms. Sgro and Ms. Block wish to intervene. Then I'll go to Ms. Bergen and Mr. Strahl.

Before I go to Ms. Block, I think it is that you're there on behalf of members to convey members' concerns and to make sure that they're consulted. You are the voice of members in that process.
Go ahead, Ms. Block.

I'm not sure that we do make the ultimate decisions, except to say what we think the requirements of the House of Commons are. PSPC has to make construction decisions and so on.
By the way, what we're asked for today, and what the presentation asks for, is approval for a certain size of space to be enclosed by walls and in which the work can be carried out. Of course, that would allow for things of various sizes within that space later, right? That's all you're talking about.
At any rate, I have Ms. Bergen, Mr. Strahl and Mr. Julian.

Lib. (NS)
Go ahead, Mr. Strahl.

Lib. (NS)
It's simply, I think, whether they can put up this wall of this size.
Mr. Julian has a different view. I'll go to him after Mr. Strahl.

Before I go to Mr. Julian, I would ask us to keep in mind how spread out the footprint of the precinct is now. Maybe in due course we could have a comment about whether part of this is intended to either limit that footprint in the future or bring it back a bit, which helps in a number of ways with efficiency, security, etc.
Go ahead, Mr. Julian.

Thank you. You put it well by saying “where to insert ourselves”.
I have Mrs. Block and Monsieur Patrice—oh, we don't have any time. Sorry; I think I had better suspend. Will you come back, please?
Mrs. Block, you have 30 seconds.
View Geoff Regan Profile
Lib. (NS)
We will all reflect on those wise words over the next 10 minutes or so, and then we'll come back, I think—or can we? We can't come back today? We have to finish? I have until 1:30, as I understand it.
The meeting is suspended.

Do we wish to approve the excavation contract strategy and the construction hoarding? Is it agreed?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
Hon. Geoff Regan: Monsieur Patrice has indicated that he will provide members of the board, in the next week or so, with a note on the governance of this process.
