I was going to speak to the motion, but if we're going to take it up later, I'll take it up later.

I have a point of order.

I believe that is repetitive business. We've already dealt with this issue substantially with the motion that has now been adjourned, so I think Mr. Lloyd's motion is out of order.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
I'm going to direct my questions to Mr. Tucker, I believe.
I want to delve into the underlying science here. Most of the reactors that I'm hearing about seem to be basically steam-driven processes. We're using novel materials, high pressures and so forth, based on novel materials and so on and so forth, but it seems to me that it's fundamentally the same technology we've had from the industrial age, except instead of cooking the tea kettle with coal or wood, or some other chemical process, we're using nuclear. It's still a tea kettle, though.
I'm wondering if there's any inkling of any other way of extracting the energy from nuclear fission other than.... Perhaps there's a non-thermodynamic kind of process. I wonder if you could help me out there.

Dr. Novog, please, if you wish.

I'll ask either of you if there is any inkling on the horizon of any other theoretical techniques for extracting the energy—something more direct, I'm thinking. I understand it's probably pie in the sky, but is there such a thing out there?

Lib. (BC)
Do we need to be putting focus and energy—and money, frankly—into those more than we are now?

Lib. (BC)
Okay, thank you.
I have 50 seconds left, so I'm going to throw this back to you, Doctor. I'm very interested in micro SMRs and the expanded opportunities they can be used for.
Is there some theoretical minimum size that we can foresee for reactors, so that we can expand that even further?
Please go ahead. We have 30 seconds.

Thank you, Chair.
I'd certainly like to support Mr. MacGregor's subamendment. I'd actually like us to be able to vote on that particular subamendment, because I'd like to move a further subamendment, which I believe I can't do as long as that's on the floor. I'm going to propose an amendment so that instead of three one-hour meetings, we have one meeting, without being too specific about the panels.
Anyway, I can't move that until we deal with this subamendment.

Mr. Chair, can we have clarification? Can we have the vote on the subamendment now and then suspend?

Mr. Chair, I would like to move a subamendment as soon as we get back.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I'd like to move a subamendment, which is substantially what Ms. Damoff said, except when she said three meetings with one-hour panels, I wish to change that to one meeting with three panels.
I'm going to read the whole of the motion as applicable to my subamendment. At the end it retains the indication of timing that was in Ms. Damoff's motion. I understand that is something still to be discussed. I propose, if we can focus on just this subamendment and deal with just that as a subsequent issue, we'll move along most effectively.
The motion, as amended, would read that the committee study the allegations of political interference in the 2020 Nova Scotia mass murder investigation and communications, and that the committee hold one three-hour meeting that will include (a) a panel to hear from the following officials from the Nova Scotia RCMP: (i) Superintendent Darren Campbell, support service officer, Nova Scotia RCMP; (ii) Assistant Commissioner Lee Bergerman, Nova Scotia RCMP; (iii) Chief Superintendent Chris Leather, Nova Scotia RCMP; (iv) communications director Lia Scanlan, Nova Scotia RCMP; and (v) senior communications manager Sharon Tessier, RCMP; (b) a panel to hear from (i) Brenda Lucki, commissioner of the RCMP; and (ii) Deputy Commissioner Brian Brennan; (c) a panel to hear from (i) former minister of public safety and emergency preparedness Bill Blair; and (ii) deputy minister of public safety Robert Stewart; and (d) that these meetings be held following the commissioner's testimony at the Mass Casualty Commission.
I understand there are some issues around the particulars there, but I suggest we vote on that particular subamendment and then we can deal with the particulars as further potential amendments.
Thank you.

No, it has not. Because we don't have it translated exactly, the clerk can't distribute it.

On the same point of order, I guess the other change is that, instead of specifying “one-hour panels”, the subamendment just specifies “panels”, so it could be an hour-and-a-half panel for the large panel, and it could be a two-hour panel for the large panel. That's really up to the committee to decide separately. I would reiterate that.... Let us vote on the subamendment and we can deal with the particulars separately.
