Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I, for one, am quite interested to hear from Bruce. I think that if we can put the precautions in place for that to happen, we should. I know that when we had another veteran here—I think it was Mr. Meincke—he had a conversation with a veteran involved in the first case who was concerned about the disclosure of his identity, and that was preventing him from coming before the committee. I would suggest that he be invited under the same terms and circumstances to the same meeting.
I would also point out that we have already set aside one more meeting to hear from veterans. These two people are veterans. This in camera special session should be the second meeting.

I'm back to the same concern I raised at the last meeting, which prompted my resignation from the subcommittee, and that is that this constitutes a further violation of the compromise that was made in camera with respect to the scheduling.
While I do think it's important to hear from this witness in the circumstances that have been provided, I do think that when people make commitments in camera they should keep them, and that's a problem.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Ledwell, when you appeared before the committee on October 20, I asked you whether the union had taken a position with respect to this case, and you said that they had not taken a public position.
Has that changed since you last appeared before committee?

Have you seen the letter that they sent to the committee today?

Okay. Let's go through it, because it appears to be the first public proclamation they've made with respect to this issue.
They have attached something that was sent to veterans service agents on November 14, asking them to take mandatory self-guided learning. They then referenced something called NOTP training, which has been offered in P.E.I. since 2018.
What's NOTP training? Mr. Harris, can you help with that?

The letter that has been submitted to the committee—and is, therefore, public—indicates that “training was being held in PEI since 2018 for new employees onboarding however since the pandemic these moved to virtual and they”—I presume that means you, Mr. Harris, Mr. Ledwell and the department—“were not providing most training during the pandemic on suicide prevention to new employees or refreshers for staff who had been there many years.”
I would ask you to comment on the veracity of the public allegation that the department, since the pandemic, has not been providing training on suicide prevention to new employees or providing refreshers.

The next sentence talks about a course called “ASSIST Suicide Prevention Training”. What is the ASSIST suicide prevention training program, which was apparently delivered through something called “LivingWorks”?
Can you help us with that?

Okay.
Specifically, I'm looking for a response to the union's public statement that there used to be a course called “ASSIST Suicide Training Program” through LivingWorks. However, the national president of the union said, “I cannot remember the last time that ASSIST was provided in our department.” It appears that you can't, either.
Maybe it's quite dated, but I think it would be helpful to respond to that public statement.

Thank you.
The last time you came before the committee, I asked about whether it is possible to terminate a civil servant. The response I got was that any disciplinary action, including termination, is subject to collective agreements.
Have you had conversations or any involvement with the union? Have they reached out to you to attempt to collaborate on resolving this issue, whether it's through a disciplinary process or any other process?

Back to the letter....
Oh, I'm sorry. It appears my time is done.
Thank you very much for being with us. This is an extremely difficult issue and we appreciate the professional way in which you've handled it. Thank you.

The meeting is in session and in public.
Mr. Liepert, thank you for agreeing to delay the move to go in public so that we only had to change over once.
You have the floor.
