Thank you, Chair.
Ms. Vaillancourt, on July 17, 2022, you published a news release in which you indicated that the union obtained confidential surveys carried out by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Do you recall that?

Lib. (PE)
On that confidential survey, did you find that it contained accurate and comprehensive information?

Ms. Vaillancourt issued a press release on July 17, 2022, citing a confidential survey carried out by the department. My question is whether you found that survey to contain valuable and accurate information.

You would agree, then, that most of the employees were well informed about the PCVRS service contract?

Survey results: page 6, question 2. “I am well informed of changes that will take place with the implementation of the new Partners in Canadian Veterans Rehabilitation Services contract.”
Sixty-eight per cent agree or slightly agree. Is that information incorrect and unreliable?

Do you agree that most who responded to the survey reported that they understood the reasons for the upcoming changes?

Have you changed your mind since we started this conversation with respect to the accuracy, reliability and value of this confidential survey?

Have you changed your mind since we started this conversation?
The Chair: Through the chair....
Mr. Sean Casey: Okay, okay.

Mr. Chair, I wish to ask the witness whether he has changed his mind, since we started this conversation, with respect to the accuracy, the completeness and the reliability of the confidential survey that was the subject of their press release in July 2022.

Lib. (PE)
Okay. If it's still your view that this information is accurate and reliable and forms the basis for your public remarks in July, then you would agree with me that most people understood the impact of the proposed changes.

Is that what you're saying?

Lib. (PE)
Okay.
Ms. Vaillancourt, are case managers overworked?
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
Their caseloads are too high?

Lib. (PE)
Therefore, would it be a good idea to get them some support in their work?
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
So it would be support from people who pay union dues.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Ms. Vaillancourt, I'm going to read something to you. Tell me if you recognize this.
I continue to meet with Senior Management on various topics and concerns while working to build the collaboration and consultation between the Department and the Union at all levels.
Do you recognize that?

You wrote those words in your report to the members in September of this year, about a month before you called for the minister's resignation.
Could you outline for the committee the steps that you took between May and August to build collaboration and consultation between the department and the union at all levels?

You would agree that contracting—

Mr. Chair, I'd like the witness to advise whether this idea of contracting out rehabilitation services is something new or is something that the department has been doing since 2006.

With respect to what you reported to your members, I asked you about what steps you had taken to build collaboration, and you responded with what the department hasn't done. Can you take another try and tell me what you have done as per your report to your members?

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
In your responses to questions from Mr. Julian and Mr. Brassard, it appears that you now have some concerns over the sample size of the confidential survey. Has the union done a survey of its own that's more comprehensive?

Then is your account today based on anecdotal conversations and the confidential survey?
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
What would you call them, if you don't have a scientific survey?
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
Your preoccupation, expressed in your responses to questions from Mr. Brassard and Mr. Julian, didn't really enter into your thinking when you referred to and relied upon those surveys in your press release of July, 2022. Is that correct?
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
You thought enough of the department's confidential survey to issue a public statement about it in July. Is that right?
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
Yes. Okay.
You've mounted a public awareness campaign around this contract. Have you approached the Legion to see if they would join with you on concerns and critique of the contract?

I call this meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting number 42 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health.
Today we meet for two hours with witnesses on our study of over-the-counter pediatric medication.
I see that we have a couple of members participating online who are well aware of the procedures and the fact that the hybrid format is permitted pursuant to the House order of June 23, 2022.
We're going to get right into welcoming the witnesses. We have a panel in front of us today who are quite familiar with the committee, as we are with them.
We have Dr. Stephen Lucas, deputy minister of Health Canada; Dr. Supriya Sharma, chief medical advisor and senior medical advisor in the health products and food branch; Stefania Trombetti, assistant deputy minister, regulatory operations and enforcement branch; Linsey Hollett, director general, health product compliance; and Dr. Kim Godard, director, health product inspection and licensing division, regulatory operations and enforcement branch.
Thank you all for being with us here today.
I understand that Dr. Lucas is going to lead us off.
You have up to five minutes, Doctor. Welcome to the committee. Thanks for being here. You have the floor.

Thank you, Dr. Lucas.
We're now going to begin with rounds of questions, starting with Mrs. Goodridge, please, for six minutes.
