Good morning, Mr. Théberge.
I am always very happy to have you appear before the Standing Committee on Official Languages and to see that you greatly appreciate the work we do here. It's good to see that a committee can be non-partisan most of the time.
In your remarks, you said, “The existing division of official languages responsibilities within the government is confusing and inefficient. That is why I want to see an effective governance structure build into the modernized act…”.
Could you elaborate on your two ideas: where is this confusing and what would you like to see in terms of effective governance?

It is often said that it's a matter of political will. There is indeed a political aspect. We are politicians, and our mentality is different. That being said, do you think that the machine itself is adapting to the politicians' desire to modernize official languages? Is the machine ready to make concessions?
Often we play the political game, and sometimes we tease each other. However, we know very well that the machine is behind us. We will move on, but the machine will remain.
Has the government machinery adapted to official languages?

Good morning.
I am amazed that we are still having this discussion in 2019. In a speech I made in the House on gender equality, I said that it is also time to talk about the equality of French and English. Today, in 2019, we are talking a lot about language equality.
However, could you explain what you mean by an oversight mechanism for the Official Languages Act. We want to modernize the act and you talked about an oversight mechanism. What would such a mechanism look like?

Good afternoon, everyone, and thank you for being here today.
My question will be for you, Mr. Mills.
You've testified before the Standing Senate Committee on Official Languages. We've spoken to you at length about the École Rose-des-vents in the Conseil scolaire francophone de la Colombie-Britannique. You said at the time that you weren't really aware of the situation. I hope you know more about it now.
Can you tell us where the decision concerning the École Rose-des-vents stands? Have you carefully read the judgment of the Supreme Court of Canada in Association des parents de l’école Rose-des-vents v. Colombie-Britannique (Éducation)? Can you tell us about it, please?

Yes, I'm asking you please to explain the Supreme Court decision to refresh the memories of committee members.

Thank you for being here, Ms. Pelletier. Your testimony is very interesting.
Have I understood correctly that the Administrative Tribunals Support Service of Canada has been around for five years now?

It's only been five years, and you're already wondering how to do better. You say that you want to “champion a culture of service excellence, innovation and continuous improvement”.
Of all the courts you deal with, is there one that stands out in trying to keep up with technology and all the new developments that are coming?
Also, can you tell us if the creation of an administrative tribunal really relieves the judicial system?
