Thank you, Chair, and thank you, members, for allowing me to participate on this landmark occasion. It really is a significant day with this appointment, and I'm honoured to be here.
I want to add my thanks to the list of people who have mentioned Justice Moldaver, because he's a remarkable jurist, a great intellect, but he's also an exceptional individual.
My first question is for Mr. MacLauchlan.
You've mentioned these networks of encouragement. In my experience, the legal community has an eye on when these appointments or vacancies become open, but they know less about the board that you chair.
Has there been any process or any thought given to broadening these networks of encouragement to getting people to participate in the board? I'll premise that by saying that the board has been different for each of the five appointments that have been made over the last number of years.

Thank you for that.
I have a minute left, so I have a quick question.
Minister Lametti, you mentioned the importance at the beginning of, to use your words, giving Canadians confidence and trust in the process. That is critically important. As you know, I practised before the courts in Ontario for over 20 years before going into politics, and I continue to be of the view that we have one of the greatest judicial systems in the world and anything that is done or said that insinuates that we don't, I take great offence to. There have been some questions even today nibbling around the edges about some of the process involved. Have any of the steps taken or any of the processes implemented in any way, shape or form jeopardized that reputation or the integrity of our courts?

Thank you, Mr. Bittle. I appreciate your sharing your time.
I have just a couple of quick questions, gentlemen.
First, if my memory serves me, in June there was discussion about an NHL investigation into the events from 2018. What's the status of that? Do we know?

Thank you.
My second series of questions is about the equity fund. My understanding is that the fund was created in 1989. It's been used 20 times to settle civil lawsuits. Nine of those cases involved allegations of sexual misconduct. The other 11 cases had no allegations of sexual misconduct. They're claims of another nature. Is that correct?

Lib. (ON)
Without getting into too many particulars, what is the nature of those claims? I guess what I'm really asking is whether this fund was created as a form of self-insurance because you didn't have coverage or you chose from a business perspective to self-insure.

Okay. Thank you.
Are the monies from that fund used for any purposes other than legal claims?
View James Maloney Profile
Lib. (ON)
So it's solely for legal purposes. But on the claim you're talking about with the individual who suffered catastrophic injuries, was there a civil action arising from that?

The question was on the incident that Mr. Cairo was talking about with regard to the individual from the Western Hockey League. Was that payment the result of a civil claim?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Are you pursuing your insurance company for any of the claims for the monies paid out as a result of this claim in March of this year?
View James Maloney Profile
Lib. (ON)
They were put on notice of the claim in 2018 when you first become aware of it, and they were notified when you received the claim in March of this year.

Lib. (ON)
Okay.
Those are all of my questions. Thank you, Madam Chair.

Thanks, Madam Chair.
Thank you, Mr. Lorenzetti, for being here today.
You are an insurance broker, right?

As an insurance broker, Hockey Canada or any other client would come to you with their insurance needs. They would explain what their needs are. You would evaluate them. Then you would point them in the direction of an insurance company who could provide an insurance policy that would provide those coverages. Is that fair?
