I would like to welcome everybody to the defence committee on Standing Order 106(4), as requested by the opposition parties.
Before I turn the floor over to MP Bezan, he's asked a couple of questions in the House in the last day or two.
I think they merit an answer, James, so I'm going to give you the answer that I think you already know, which is with regard to how this meeting is to be conducted, because it's germane to today's get-together.
You came to me and asked me if we could have this meeting televised, and I said I would check into it, which I did. I was told that although these rooms, the modern rooms—and we have many of them in this building and in the other new building—have the capability to televise, we don't actually have the capacity because we don't have enough crews. That was the answer that I received—because other committees wanted to be televised.
I then asked you if there was something else I could do to accommodate you, and you asked if we could move from our regular room to a bigger room so that we could accommodate more people and the press. I said I would check, and I subsequently moved the meeting to this room. As you notice, this is not our normal room. I did pretty much what I could to accommodate your requests.
I did look back in time and found that there have been three meetings called on Standing Order 106(4) in the history of this defence committee, two in the 42nd Parliament, while I've been the chair, and one that was held in public. There was one that was televised, one that was public, where people can come in, and we just had a whole bunch of press here. The third meeting, under a different Parliament and a Conservative government, was held in camera.
I think I've done my part. We've done our part to be as transparent as we can. This meeting is open to people who want to watch, listen or do whatever they need to do. This is a transparent process. Unfortunately, we didn't get exactly what you wanted, but I did the best I could to give you what I could.
With that, I'm going to give you the floor to move your motion and make your point.

Thank you.
I will explain how I'd like to proceed. I'll turn the floor over to MP Garrison, and then I have a number of MPs who would like to speak. To start, I'll go to the party that was the other signatory to Standing Order 106(4). Then I'll take it over to the Liberals. I have a number of people after that.
If you want to speak, let me know. We all know that there's no time limit here, but please be respectful of the fact that a number of people want to speak.
I will yield the floor to MP Garrison.

Thank you. I see the clock at 16:35. The meeting was called to go to 16:30. I didn't interrupt, but I see that there are still people who want to continue to debate, so we'll just continue the meeting.
I'm going to yield the floor, in order of operation, to MP Spengemann, MP O'Toole and MP Dzerowicz. If there are still other people who want to speak, we'll get to you. If you want to speak to this, just get my attention and I'll feed you in. You're on there, Martel and Bezan, but I'm going to feed other members in so that the debate's a back-and-forth. You're on the list. You'll get an opportunity to speak.
MP Spengemann.

Okay. We will have debate on the motion as amended.

I think where we left off was that you were not willing to amend your amendment. We have the amended motion from MP Garrison on the table, and we're still open for debate.
Mr. Spengemann.
