Thank you, Professor Lemmens. I think we have come to the end of that time.
There are bells ringing in the House for votes, but we have had unanimous consent to continue for 20 minutes, so we will have 10 minutes in which to vote.
Right now I'm looking at the bells. I just wanted to give you a heads up, everyone, so you know what's going on. We have 24 minutes left and the bells. It means we have 12 minutes for the second round.
Given that Senator Martin has left, I will go to the second round quickly. That second round will begin with Mr. Arseneault, for three minutes. That includes questions and answers, so be mindful, those who are answering as well. Thank you.

Thank you very much to both witnesses, Professor Lemmens and Professor Downie.
We said we would leave so that we have 10 minutes to vote. We are now coming up to those 10 minutes. We're going to have bells coming up again very, very soon, so I think it may well be that we will have little time to come to our second hour.
To the two clerks, I am very sorry that we have witnesses lined up to speak, but this is the nature of the beast at the moment with votes.
I want to thank the witnesses for coming. I want to thank everyone for being respectful with their questions, and I want to say that I think this meeting should now be adjourned.
Thank you very much.

I am told by the whips' offices that there is going to be another set of bells coming up very soon. I think it's at eight o'clock that we will have bells. That means that's going to be another set of votes, and we just won't have the time....
I am so sorry. I would love to continue, but resources have to begin again. People have been waiting for an 8:30 end to committee.
I am so sorry, Ms. Findlay. I would love to continue with this.
I want to thank you all again.
I think we may have to talk to each other soon, because we're not going to be having another meeting. We may have to contact each other with regard to the decisions we made on other issues.
Thank you very much.
Goodbye, everybody.

I will be chairing the meeting because the two joint chairs decided amongst ourselves that we're going to do alternate meetings. This is my meeting today.
Good evening, everyone.
Welcome to the public portion of this meeting of the Special Joint Committee on Medical Assistance in Dying.
Welcome to the members of the committee, to the witnesses and to everyone watching us online.
My name is Hedy Fry. I am the joint House of Commons chair of this committee between the House of Commons and the Senate.
Today, we're starting our examination of the statutory review of the provisions of the Criminal Code relating to medical assistance in dying and their application.
Before we begin, I would remind members and witnesses to keep their microphones muted at all times unless recognized by name by the chair.
With that, I welcome our witnesses from the Department of Health and the Department of Justice.
From the Department of Health, we have Ms. Abby Hoffman.
Abby, it's so good to see you again. I haven't seen you for ages.
Also from the Department of Health, we have Jacquie Lemaire, senior policy adviser for the strategic policy branch. From the Department of Justice, we have Joanne Klineberg, acting general counsel in the criminal law policy section, policy sector; and Caroline Quesnel, counsel, also in the criminal law policy section.
We will now begin with opening remarks of five minutes. To the witnesses, I just want to ensure that you know you have five minutes, and I'm going to have to cut you off brutally at five minutes. Following that, we will have questions and answers by the committee.
Thank you for joining us. We will start with opening remarks by Ms. Hoffman, and then Ms. Klineberg.
Ms. Hoffman, please begin.

Thank you, Ms. Klineberg. Maybe when you get a question from someone else they will allow you to expand on that.
Now I am going to the next questioner, who is a Conservative.
Ms. Findlay, you have five minutes.
