Thank you.
I would like to add a francophone touch to those beautiful words directed at my colleagues. I would like to thank my colleagues from all the parties, especially the three leaving.
You have always been extremely kind and cordial, especially with the new MPs, and I thank you for that. I have learned a lot from you. I have learned a great deal from the professional way in which you interact, and I can never thank you enough for that.
In the first weeks after we arrived at Parliament, in 2011, after a hard day's work, I was shocked to see a minister, two NDP members and one Liberal member sharing a pizza and drinking beer on a patio on Sparks Street. That truly gave me faith in humanity and in our Parliament. As Rick mentioned, it is true that we attack each other a lot during question period, but outside work, we can all get along well. I have learned a lot from most of my colleagues from all the parties in the House.
I wish you a happy retirement and the best of luck in your future endeavours. I will always imagine that you are watching me when I rise in the House during question period. You will be there to watch me and I will try to do a good job.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I would also like to thank Mr. Lapensée, Mr. Ferguson and Mr. Stock for joining us today to discuss division 10 of part 3 of Bill C-59.
I will start with you, Mr. Ferguson. In your remarks, you said that you have already recommended that the House of Commons administration and the Senate administration collaborate on establishing a unified security force.
Today, you have shared your main recommendations. However, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police would also be added to an integrated force on Parliament Hill. The intent is for the RCMP to be put in charge of that unified security force, which would also include RCMP members. What do you think about that?

Mr. Lapensée said earlier that he felt that mixing executive and legislative powers as proposed in the bill was problematic.
Do you agree with him?

Thank you very much.
Mr. Lapensée, thank you for being here today and for your comments.
I was especially interested in your labour relations concerns. I know that officers who work on Parliament Hill have a collective agreement. I really thought that your employees would be protected by a collective agreement, even if the forces on Parliament Hill were unified. In your remarks, you said that the bill does not uphold the commitment guaranteeing the employment of all employees of the House of Commons Security Services. I am very concerned by that.
Could you elaborate a bit further? Why won't your employment be guaranteed even though you have a collective agreement? Will this change your duties on Parliament Hill? Do you have an idea of what will happen to your jobs?

You have a collective agreement, but RCMP officers do not have one, since they are not unionized.
Do you think this situation could lead to a dichotomy of sorts? Will there be a double standard between the RCMP employees and you?

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I would like to thank the witnesses who came here today to discuss various provisions of Bill C-59 relating to public safety.
I have a number of questions about the new powers that have been given to the Minister of Public Safety with respect to the revocation of passports. I don't know if you can answer this question, but I'd like to know who determines whether a case falls within the jurisdiction of the Minister of Public Safety rather than the Minister of Immigration.
Who makes that decision?

Okay.
There was discussion of what constitutes terrorism or a threat to security. I would like to know whether this definition includes what is in Bill C-51, which covers a threat to the Canadian economy and infrastructures.
Is that part of what is being proposed here?

That's excellent.
It's really a question that a number of members and a large part of the population are asking: Why are these amendments or proposals in a budget implementation bill?

This is one of the suggested questions in the official briefing notes. That's why I asked it. I think it's a question that is important to answer. I am disappointed to see that we will unfortunately not get an answer.
