Thank you very much, Madam Chair.
Through you, I'd like to thank the witnesses for being here today.
I'm going to focus on three areas, and again, whichever witness is most appropriate to respond, I will leave to you to decide.
We talked a little bit about MP security, and since I was elected in 2015, we have seen a lot of advancement in terms of our physical safety, whether it be the panic buttons we have been provided or our residence and constituency office security systems.
I have been talking a little bit about this, and I haven't received any updates and/or movement on it. The House is in session, and right now it's what we call the “silly season” and we're sitting until midnight often. What happens is that the House will adjourn at midnight, and you have a group of MPs walking in downtown Ottawa at 12:30 at night.
I asked, I remember, in a previous meeting to see if it was possible for the shuttle bus to do a loop to some of the local hotels. We work it out among ourselves to walk home together so that we're not walking alone. It's great that I have my panic button, but it's basically just going to record somebody attacking me.
Is there a possibility of looking into the shuttle service? I know that with the Senate building being a little farther away, we do pass in front of hotels. Is this something that could be put in place for those who feel they need it?
