Thank you, Mr. May.
I currently have invitations out for the meetings on November 22 and November 24, so next Tuesday and Thursday. This is our sixth meeting on the arctic security study. The work plan that was agreed to by the committee and that was put together by the analysts identified nine meetings. However, some of the witnesses that appeared on that work plan have been unavailable, so should the committee wish to have those witnesses, we would need to add additional meetings.

Sure.
For the meeting on November 22, we have planned for icebreaking and search and rescue.
Then the operations in the north have been bumped from this Thursday to the following Thursday.
Basically, to answer your question with a bigger answer, we have eight meetings between now and December 15. If we finish the witnesses who are outstanding from the Arctic study, that would be five of those eight meetings.
This would leave us with three meetings. The AG could fill one of those meetings. We also have the supplementary estimates still to be tabled.

I'll add quickly that we will likely have a first panel of witnesses for the moon shot study on the 14th in the last hour. That's as it's currently set. That can be changed, of course.

I'm doing my best to change it into.... I'll read it in English. It is that the committee invite the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, François-Philippe Champagne, to testify as part of the study on research and scientific publication in French for one hour, during one of the meetings of the committee to be held in the month of November, and then for another hour on the international moon-shot programs.

Absolutely.
The Supreme Court was created by federal statute long after Canada was founded, and that statute is the one that establishes the criteria. The Constitution merely provides that there is a Supreme Court. That's obviously from the Constitution Act, 1982, not that of 1867.
Now, I want to emphasize that we must adopt the litigants' point of view, not that of the judges or judicial candidates, in determining what should be done. Do all the citizens of Canada who speak either of the two official languages have equal access to the Supreme Court if its judges can't understand them directly? The answer is no.
I sat on the Supreme Court for 11 and a half years, and, during that time, there were at least two judges who couldn't read the briefs or even judgments written in French before voting, because the judgments aren't translated until they've been approved by the judges. The Canadian Bar Association therefore proposed something that I thought was utterly unacceptable. It maintained that it was sufficient to have bilingual judges sitting only when the court was hearing cases in French. That's not equality either. It changes matters because there are tendencies within the Supreme Court. There are groups that vote one way or another in somewhat ideological fashion. All judges must therefore be qualified in order to sit in all cases.

That's a question that's unfortunately beyond the scope and perspective of the report. It depends more on the government's immigration policy, on which I unfortunately haven't recently published a report. Nor would I be the person most qualified to say whether the government should make additional efforts to attract francophone immigrants or make the necessary investments for that purpose.

Thank you. The expectation usually is that they are provided to us right away in the two official languages from the government.
Private entities don't have to provide the translation. We do it. When it comes from departments, usually the expectation is that they will provide it to us in the two languages.

I was looking earlier at the blues because the official transcript is not out, and it was Mr. Paul-Hus who made the request for the report on the use of the hotel. He made it to a representative of PSPC, who referred to the CBSA in his answer. That's the only inkling I have that it perhaps would be the CBSA, but....

I'm just looking again through the blues, and in one of his responses, Mr. Stéphan Déry specified that the hotel was leased at the request of the CBSA, so I think that would probably be the party to ask.
