Thank you, Chair.
Welcome to all of our witnesses online and the people in the room today. All of your testimony provided many examples of individuals and groups that have been denied refunds, and I note the other issues you've raised.
I think a number of factors unfortunately converged to create the perfect storm and a problem for air passengers. Very soon after the government introduced its new passenger rights system in 2019, there were, notably, the pandemic and subsequent shutdowns of most air travel, labour shortages that persisted and so on. Even after the public health measures were relaxed, we still had major problems.
Given that, would you say that on balance, we are still better off with the legislative and regulatory framework, as opposed to the situation that existed before, when each individual airline set its own system, including compensation amounts?
I'll start with Mr. Lawford and then go to Mr. Charbonneau. Then we'll ask a couple of people online.

Ms. De Bellefeuille, at the moment, it strikes me that one of the main problems is there is not enough disincentive for airlines to go to the CTA, dragging out the process and discouraging travellers from exercising their rights.
Would you agree with this assessment? If so, what should be done to change this incentive structure?

On a point of order, Mr. Chair, we do have a vote scheduled for one o'clock. We need 15 minutes to get back to our offices or to Parliament in order to do that. On what we see scheduled here, obviously, we need to finish 15 minutes early, before one o'clock, to vote.

Mr. Chair, going back to Mr. Casey's point about our schedule that we previously arranged, I want to point out that we missed two meetings recently. They were cancelled for other reasons. We lost two full meetings.
We have a schedule that we want to have done, in terms of the study on marriage after 60 and then the one on employment. If we're going to start interjecting on a particular topic and add two meetings here or two meetings there, then we're not going to accomplish a whole lot as a committee.
I strongly support what Mr. Samson is saying about one meeting and one hour for each portion. I'd support that, but not two.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Certainly I want to welcome the minister to committee. Thank you for your support within the department.
I'd like to fall back on questions, Minister, that you answered the last time you came to OGGO, and really the ongoing support for public sector workers.
To begin, could you speak to whether any agreements with the bargaining agents have taken place? Are there any updates there?

Minister, would you update the committee, please, on the work to protect whistle-blowers?

Would you please provide information on why the International Bar Association ranked Canada's whistle-blowing protection last?

Regarding bilingualism, how are we improving supports for bilingualism among public servants, and why is that so important?

Thank you.
I'm going to reference the supplementary estimates (B), 2022-23. That estimate includes five measures from budget 2022.
What percentage of budget 2022 measures have been presented in supplementary estimates, so far?
View Joanne Thompson Profile
Lib. (NL)
Thank you. I appreciate the clarification.
Do you expect other budget 2022 measures to be presented in subsequent supplementary estimates this year?

I'm going to switch topics.
The last time you presented to committee, you spoke about indigenous entrepreneurship. Are you able to give us an update on what's happening on the file and in the work?

Thank you.
If I can move to a slightly different topic, could you explain why public accounts take longer to produce than provincial accounts?

Are you able to give an update on where we are with the Phoenix pay system?
