Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Air Canada announced that it would retire 79 older aircraft rather than pay to keep them in flying condition while grounded.
Over the next few months, thousands of aircraft could be taken out of service.
Wouldn't this be an opportunity to develop the embryonic aircraft recycling industry we already have?

It absolutely could be. Again, we need to get on the forefront. That could be a bridge to help us, but we need to have that long-term sectoral strategy to move us forward. We need to get people flying. We need to spend money on innovation and environmental.... Absolutely, that could be a bridge to get us there and to help our industry survive until we receive those orders.
Keep in mind that our long lead times make us so different from everybody else. What's affecting everybody now is going to affect us in the fall. For every month that we're closed down, we're not going to catch up for another year. I can speak for us. We closed on March 29. We are going to reopen fully in July. We're not going to recover back to normal for two years. Our lead times are a deterrent for us to get back to being healthy. That could be that bridge to get us from now to where we need to be in that sectoral strategy.

This motion was first tabled in the dying days of the last session:
That, the committee undertake a study of four meetings in regard to Transport Canada's aircraft certification process, including, but not limited to, the nature of Transport Canada's relationship to the Federal Aviation Administration and other certifying bodies, as well as the role of airplane manufacturers in the certification process.
This is top of mind. We know that the families and Canadians all across our country are very cognizant that possible recertification in July of the 737 Max is fast approaching. They want to ensure that we parliamentarians are doing our job in checking how this certification is going with the officials. They want to make sure that we're not just relying on the FAA, which was a rubber stamp and one of the previous issues.

Are we on new business? Is that where we're at? We're past the routine motions?
Mr. Chair, we have, possibly coming up in the days, weeks and months ahead, the recertification of the 737 Max. Therefore, I would like to table a motion that this be one of the very first studies this committee endeavours to have. It has impacted Canadians from all across our country. It is an issue that we should be seized with.
Therefore, Mr. Chair, I would like to read into the record and table the following motion:
That, the committee undertake a study of four meetings in regard to Transport Canada’s aircraft certification process, including, but not limited to, the nature of Transport Canada’s relationship to the Federal Aviation Administration and other certifying bodies, as well as the role of airplane manufacturers in the certification process.
In the spirit of collaboration and fairness, I will get my colleague from Quebec to read this in French, if we are all right with that. It is in both English and French, by the way.
Are we good? Everybody is good. All right.
We have copies for all.

Great. Thank you, Mr. Doherty.
I will accept that as a motion to formalize. I'm reading that the members want something more formalized, so I'll read that as a motion.
Are there any questions or comments on that motion?
(Motion agreed to [See Minutes of Proceedings])
Is there any further business?
Mr. Berthold.
