Thank you, Chair.
I want to thank my colleague MP McKay and also Senator Miville-Dechêne for their long and relentless advocacy on this important work.
We heard Minister O'Regan say in the House before the summer recess that the government would support this bill and would work with all parliamentarians on any amendments that would strengthen it, as well as bring forward further legislation. That was good to hear.
Mr. McKay, forced labour is a complex issue that spans many jurisdictions, borders and supply chains. Could you maybe elaborate on this complexity and on the work you've both done on this issue?

Is there a will...or is there a passage in this that will help work with others, whether it be our free trade partners like the United States or the European Union, or CPTPP in Southeast Asia and others, to help facilitate that? Obviously, a supplier or importer here in Canada might not be able to check along, but if there are rules and regulations in the region of where the source is coming from, they can rely on that, because they have better ways to assess those.
Is there any collaboration with our European friends or Americans or maybe others in Southeast Asia in order to implement it better?

What I'm trying to see is this. If a source company and their product is approved by Australia or the U.K., I'm wondering if that's something a Canadian importer would be able to rely on and say they've checked: This source is relied upon. The European Union has approved this source, the United States has or Australia has. We can then use that same verification in order to import it here.
Is that a possibility, that it could be in collaboration with those?

I just wanted to echo Ms. Bendayan's comments. With regard to the Gazprom turbine issue, I think we still have some meetings left. I think we should table a report. We should flesh out some of the issues that Mr. Genuis brought up in the remaining part of that study. I think there's room to add those and refresh those. We should get that report out. Rather than multiple studies, I think it can be incorporated into that and get into it in a timely manner.
Thank you.

Thank you, Chair, and thank you to both witnesses.
We've been hearing a lot about this topic and about the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in general. It's important to everyone's heart here in Canada. I want to let you know that we take this very seriously.
What we've noticed is that unity in the response to Russia's invasion has been key, and Putin's goal clearly remains to try to divide NATO and the European Union countries. One of the successes has been the fact that the response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been negated or has been strongly opposed by European countries, specifically NATO, and they've been unified in their response, whether that's giving military aid, whether that's giving aid in general, or whether that's giving support at the United Nations or elsewhere.
How important do you see the maintenance of the European Union support for Ukraine being as this war unfortunately drags on, Mr. Michalchyshyn?

I just want to be clear. Currently there's permission for only these Siemens turbines. There's no other relaxation of sanctions. As we've noticed, they're not being used, but if we impose the sanctions, they still won't be used or they may be used. Regardless, that wouldn't have any significant impact that I can see one way or the other, except that the German people would know that Canada didn't do anything to block their energy needs. I just want to be clear that no other sanctions were lifted based on this exemption for the Siemens turbine to be serviced.

I call this meeting to order.
Good morning, everyone. Welcome to meeting number 26 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights. The committee is meeting to discuss the nomination of the Honourable Michelle O’Bonsawin to the Supreme Court of Canada.
Today’s meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of June 23, 2022. Members are attending in person in the room and remotely using the Zoom application. The proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website.
For those on Zoom, you have the choice, at the bottom of your screen, of floor, English or French. I believe Madam Lori Idlout might be speaking in Inuktitut, and there will be translation services made available during her speaking time as well. For those in the room, you can use the earpiece and select the desired channel.
I would like to welcome our witnesses. They are the Honourable David Lametti, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, and the Honourable Wade MacLauchlan, chairperson of the Independent Advisory Board for Supreme Court of Canada Judicial Appointments.
Gentlemen, the floor is yours.

Unfortunately, Mr. Moore, we're out of time for that round, and I'll ask Mr. Lametti if, hopefully, he can answer that in a subsequent response.

I'm going to have the clerk check on that. It may take a few seconds because I think it's being translated into English and then into French.
