Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I thank the witnesses for being here. Listening to them is most interesting. Their testimony is enlightening.
I am an islander, so the insularity of Prince Edward Island resonates with me. My father spent his life on the St. Lawrence River. He did coastal trade on a schooner. He was a captain. I was just talking about that this morning. My father always said that the offshore fishery was going to break the ecosystem and take away some of the fish and seafood that we need for community balance, as may be the case for Prince Edward Island. It's the same thing in the Magdalen Islands.
Mr. MacPherson, can you speak to that further, please?

Thank you, that's very interesting.
In Quebec, we have what is called the blue economy strategy. It's been a big trend. It's about ensuring our self-sufficiency, turning to the community and prioritizing that part of our economy over the international part. The international economy may look more lucrative on the surface, but in fact it is often catastrophic in terms of depleting marine resources.
What is the situation on your side?
Are you concerned about losing, over time, the fish resource itself?

So the economic vitality of your sector is indeed threatened, in these circumstances, if there is overfishing.

I'd like to address Ms. Sonnenberg.
Do you believe that there is an imminent danger of a resource shortage for small operators?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I would love to be a permanent member of this committee. Our very interesting discussions make me hungry for more.
I'll address Mr. Sullivan.
We've been thinking a lot and I've been taking notes. Transparency, community economy and market economy are important. The market economy is a resource and we need to maintain the market.
What are your proposals?
Could we set up an oversight committee that some of you could serve on? Could that be a way to brainstorm and monitor the situation more closely?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I thank the witnesses for their statement.
I'd like to talk about the resource. What happens off the estuary and Gulf of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec indirectly and directly influences the raw material, which is the marine resource basin within the St. Lawrence River.
There is a transaction that is being discussed a great deal and in fact we talked about it with the previous witnesses. My perennial concern is that overharvesting will eventually undermine the resource.
What steps is your company taking to avoid such overharvesting?

How would you like the department to intervene so that too much of the resource does not go overseas? We want to avoid not having enough to maintain the balance between the community economy and the protection of the resource in Canada and Quebec.
Do you want the department to intervene to prevent too much investment and too much resource from going offshore?

Earlier, in talking with other witnesses, I brought up the idea of an oversight committee made up of different stakeholders who could defend the values they hold dear. Such a committee could assist the department in maintaining balance. We were talking about transparency and that delicate balance that needs to be maintained.
Is that an interesting option?
You could sit on the oversight committee with other stakeholders who want you to maintain that balance and work together.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My thanks to the witnesses for being here.
Mr. Glover, one of your roles is to provide information to the Minister with respect to the systems modernization process and the proposals that are being made.
Is all the information given to the Minister? Is any of it left out?

Thank you for your response.
Does Shared Services Canada tell the various departments and entities which vendor to choose, or are they free to select the company of their choice?
View Caroline Desbiens Profile
BQ (QC)
Thank you.
Do they need to confirm their choice with Shared Services Canada before moving forward, or do they have the final say?
Do they sign the contracts?
How does that part work?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Glover, I agree with my colleague, we're very grateful to you for being with us and giving us your time.
I understand that there are major security issues. I'd like to come back to security clearances. That may be where the solution lies. We are looking for solutions. You say that you don't always know how many people around you are authorized to read the reports.
Could you send us a list of names or the number of people who have had access to the full unredacted report?
View Caroline Desbiens Profile
BQ (QC)
Thank you for your response.
Would it be possible to have a list, even if it is not comprehensive? It would be interesting to see who has access to the report and who doesn't. Given that it contains sensitive information, did Gartner Canada employees need to get security clearance to read it?

As members of Parliament, could we not get security clearance in the same way as Gartner Canada? After all, we are elected officials who make up a restricted committee.
Could that be a solution?
