Thank you so much, Mr. Chair.
Minister, do you think there should be systemic and formal changes to the international system of accreditation as a result of the Max 8 tragedies, and if so, what changes are you looking for?

Thank you.
More generally speaking, how do you respond to the criticisms that Transport Canada has been a victim of regulatory capture and that too much oversight has been delegated to the industry itself?

What is the aviation safety record in Canada? Can you provide statistics? Are there any trends that can be observed?

Perhaps, Minister, I can afford you some time, and I promise not to interrupt. I don't know if you want to respond to Mr. Doherty. I'm new to this committee, and I hope, going forward, that we don't see this on a continuing basis.
Would you or Mr. Turnbull like to respond to some of the allegations that have been raised by Mr. Doherty?

Sorry, Mr. Turnbull, but I have a point of order.
I thought this would be without interruption, Minister and Mr. Chair, but Mr. Doherty again is trying to talk over all of us when he doesn't like what's being said. That's inappropriate—

Thank you so much.
Mr. Turnbull, I apologize for interrupting.

This is just a suggestion. Perhaps we can save this for the committee business portion, which we've extended, and hear from the witnesses. There was a significant request from the opposition to extend the time because they desperately wanted to hear from these witnesses. Now we're eating into that time. Maybe, then, we can table this for the time that we set aside to actually discuss committee business.

Perhaps we can quickly deal with Mr. Bachrach's motion. Then perhaps we can entertain a motion to go in camera, which I think is a....

I propose an amendment of up to “two additional meetings”, because I know that one of the slots wasn't necessarily filled already, so....

My concerns have been let out of the bag. I don't think going in camera is necessary at this point.

Given the circumstances, can this be shelved until we get back? We'll still have our additional days, plus we have to write a report. There's still a lot of time before we have to set a time for witness lists.

Again, given the reality of what's going on, and if there are going to be any agreements in terms of what the civil service does and their access to it, is there a willingness to accept “30 days after the House next sits”, for example? Because it's up in the air, I don't want us to be found to be in contempt.

I don't know anything. I'm just hearing things, and it's been mentioned by Mr. Barsalou-Duval as well.

In all seriousness, if we're hearing that in Ontario schools are being closed and sporting events and large gatherings are being cancelled, it's not outside the realm of possibility that it will happen either to the federal civil service or the House of Commons itself, and if we're setting a firm deadline for these documents to be provided, I don't want it to be a question of privilege for the member, if we get back and that's not fulfilled.

I share the concerns regarding the accuracy of it, because it's very easy to cut and paste the transcripts, and I have done it. Sometimes it's a lot easier to just post that on social media and then that becomes the truth that's out there.
I don't know if this is a question for PROC with regard to decisions are being made across the House rather than just our committee. Since there are only a few minutes left, maybe this is something that we can take back to our whips and House leaders to discuss, rather than making a decision right now, because if a decision were made right now, I'd be against it, but I'm happy to take it back to our House leaders.
