Excuse me, Mr. Chair, but would it be possible to introduce them?

Mr. Chair, before you launch into the explanation of the process, I would like to have the floor to speak to last Thursday's meeting.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I would just like to apologize for the tone I took last Thursday. I think the substance was fine, but the tone was perhaps not acceptable. I would especially like to apologize to the interpreters, who may have had a more difficult situation or period. So I apologize to the interpreters and to my colleagues.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. We hope to follow the set procedures. I think you know I have tremendous respect for the institution. If I make any mistakes, I'm sure that my colleagues and yourself will be able to set me straight.
I think this first amendment is important, in light of Quebec's special status.
Because the amendment is short, I will read it out loud. The amendment proposes that Bill C‑13, in Clause 2, be amended by replacing line 18 on page 1 to line 16 on page 2 with the following:
ted to respecting Quebec's language planning choices, as set out in the Charter of the French language;
You have to understand that Quebec is home to a small group of francophones who are surrounded by a sea of North American anglophones. I think that this amendment should be made to the bill.
That is all I have to say right now.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I heard my two Liberal colleagues saying that there was no need to include the charter in Bill C‑13.
I simply want to remind them that Quebec enjoys a unique status, that it is surrounded by a sea of anglophones and that the aim of the amendment is to protect a linguistic minority in Canada.
I'm not doing this because I am opposed to the other official language. I have tremendous respect for both official languages. However, given Quebec's minority status, I think that we should seek to reinforce protective measures to avoid French being wiped out in Quebec.

I've done the math, and I fully understand that the Liberals and the NDP will vote against my amendment and, as Ms. Ashton mentioned earlier, we're going to speed up the processing of this bill.
I can see where this is going, so I'm asking for unanimous consent for this amendment.

Mr. Chair, could you ask Mr. Beaulieu again whether or not he agrees to unanimous consent? I'm not sure if he actually heard the procedure because of the technical problems.

It's not in the order of the clauses.

Mr. Garneau, I'm trying to find in the bill what you just quoted. Can you tell us where it is?

I have a point of order, Mr. Chair.

Ms. Boily, I think you have the wrong amendment.
