It's all right.
I have two motions to put forward, but I'd like to say something first.
I want to be sure we discuss the motions before establishing the list of priorities, once we have them all, by the next meeting.
My first motion is similar to Mrs. Bessette's. We all seem to share the same interests, regardless of political stripe. My motion reads as follows:
That the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage conduct a general study of at least 4 meetings on the socio-economic impacts of stakeholders under the Department of Canadian Heritage or benefiting, in one way or another, from the support of the Department of Canadian Heritage and the organizations therein being subject to:
a) draw up a clear picture of the impacts of the pandemic on their activities; b) better identify their needs during the current crisis; c) identify gaps in federal aid programs; d) identify more effective support measures better suited to their reality. This study should be completed before the Christmas Break.
My second motion reads as follows:
That the committee invite the Minister of Canadian Heritage and department officials from Canadian Heritage to appear to discuss the spending priorities outlined in the Main Estimates, and that this meeting occur before November 24, 2020.
Those are my two motions, which we will send to you, Mr. Chair.
