Thank you, and congratulations, Mr. Chair.
I want to just make an amendment to the motion that any motion to go in camera should be debatable and amendable, and that the committee may only meet in camera for the following purposes: (a) to discuss administrative matters of the committee, (b) a draft report, (c) briefings concerning national security, and furthermore, minutes of in camera meetings should reflect on the results of all votes taken by the committee while in camera, including how each member voted when a recorded vote is requested.

The purpose of the motion is just to make what we're discussing in the meetings more transparent to our voters and the public, which is why I'm putting forth this motion.

Perhaps we could amend it to “matters that fall under FIPPA legislation”. It would be more specific. I think “personal” matters is a bit vague. I think it's probably better if we have a clearer definition of that.

Mr. Chair, I wanted to make one more motion.
The Chair: Yes, Ms. Gazan.
Ms. Leah Gazan: It's like a dry run of a newbie. I'm sorry. Here's the motion:
That the chair be authorized to hold meetings to receive and publish evidence when a quorum is not present, provided that at least four (4) members are present, including two (2) members from the opposition and two (2) members from the government; and that in the case of previously scheduled meetings taking place outside of the parliamentary precinct, the committee members in attendance be required to wait for 15 minutes following the designated start of the meeting before they may proceed to hear witnesses and receive evidence, regardless of whether opposition or government members are present.

I'd like to move that we postpone the election of the second vice-chair until after PROC has made its decision, in much the same way the finance committee has done.

I just had two other routine motions that I was hoping to put forward. I wasn't sure if this was the time.

Thank you.
The second motion on the sheet that you're about to get is an amendment to the previous routine motion.
I'll proceed with the first one, regarding in camera proceedings. I move:
That any motion to go in camera should be debatable and amendable, and that the committee may only meet in camera for the following purposes: (a) to discuss administrative matters of the committee, (b) a draft report, (c) briefings concerning national security;
And furthermore, minutes of in camera meetings should reflect on the results of all votes taken by the committee while in camera, including how each member voted when a recorded vote is requested.

Yes. Fundamentally, this is to make sure that we have the greatest amount of transparency when we're holding these meetings, that we're only going in camera when it is absolutely necessary, and that the public is invited into this space and is able to follow along in our discussions around the environment and climate change.

My understanding is that this has passed at a number of other committees, including PROC.

If the committee is wanting to think through this motion and look at the precedent set by a number of other committees, we could table it until our next meeting.
