I wanted to say exactly the same thing as Ms. Khalid. For me, it's very late. I'd like to know if we can read the motion and continue with the witnesses who are here. That can be the first thing we deal with tomorrow.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
If you want me to put forward a motion to adjourn the debate, I'd be pleased to do so.
I wanted to know if we can come to an agreement among colleagues. As I said, I would like us to take this up tomorrow morning at the beginning of the meeting, at 11 a.m. That would give us time to read the documents and take into consideration what Ms. Khalid suggested.
Perhaps there's a way to improve the motion. Give us a few hours to read through these documents so we can propose amendments. Then we can have a great debate. I think that would be the best way to go, but I'd like to know if we can—

All right.
Mr. Chair, I don't have the pleasure of being in the room. Actually, I have the great pleasure of not being in the room, given where I am. Is there no appetite for us to just have this debate first thing tomorrow morning?

That works for me.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
It really comes down to that. Look, folks, this is an opportunity. I think we're all on the same page here. I think we all are keenly interested in this issue. We all want to have a fulsome debate. I think there's an opportunity for us to do this.
Let's be frank. We don't have a full roster of witnesses tomorrow. I think the chair's suggestion was very co-operative, and one that I think everyone can support. We have time tomorrow so that we can do this without cutting back on witnesses, so why not? It's only a couple of hours later, folks.

My apologies, I was going back to reading the motion on my P9 email account.
I would like to apologize to all members, particularly my colleague from the Bloc Québécois. The reason I don't have the headset is because the meeting was called while I was out of the country, and I didn't have my headset or my computer with me. I'm sorry about that.
Again, I apologize to all my colleagues and to the interpreters.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Could I ask if the chair could allow us to have five minutes to discuss this motion because these materials were requested. I would just like to know a little bit more about what the implications are. I would just like to have a couple of minutes to consider Mr. Bezan's motion.

I'm sorry, Mr. Chair.

If it's inconvenient for members to continue or if it's impossible for us to extend beyond one o'clock, perhaps we could save this discussion for the next meeting.

I have a point of order, Mr. Chair.

As per section 18 of our Standing Orders, it is important to grant witnesses enough time to at least answer the questions posed by members.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
The reason I think it is important to remove the name of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada and the reference to officials from the motion is because our time is limited. Today, in fact, I would have preferred to continue to ask questions of the witnesses, because I know this committee will be sitting again.
The minister is just going to say what Mr. Anandasangaree already outlined: the decision was not his, but that of his officials. So we will waste five or seven minutes if we insist on asking him questions, because he will repeat the same thing.
As for the officials, considering the explanations they gave after Nova Scotia RCMP Superintendent Campbell's notes were released, I can think a number of other people who could give more interesting and enlightening explanations for Canadians and certainly for parliamentarians.
It is simply for the sake of efficiency that I propose to question only the witnesses on the rest of the list. That way we will get a lot of clarification about what happened between the two RCMP offices.
