I'll even add a little something if it will get us through these darn meetings.

NDP

Mathieu Ravignat Pontiac, QC

I don't have issues with the motion.

I have a question about the report: we're report-writing on what?

10:25 a.m.

NDP

The Chair David Christopherson

That's a fair question.

Alex, what's the one that we have teed up?

10:25 a.m.

Alex Smith Committee Researcher

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

The committee had considered a report on the Public Accounts of Canada 2011. Some changes were made. The committee had wanted to see those changes before adopting the report. That's one thing for the committee.

The other is that the committee had done a study on Canada's economic action plan, or the audit of that. That draft is now available for the committee to consider.

10:25 a.m.

NDP

The Chair David Christopherson

And we would take it in that order.

10:25 a.m.

Liberal

John McKay Scarborough—Guildwood, ON

I'm sorry, I was distracted there. I missed that.

10:25 a.m.

NDP

The Chair David Christopherson

That's fine.

Alex, would you summarize that again quickly, please?

10:25 a.m.

Committee Researcher

Alex Smith

Yes, Mr. Chair.

So for Public Accounts of Canada 2011, changes have been tracked for the committee to consider, and then Canada's economic action plan.

10:25 a.m.

Liberal

John McKay Scarborough—Guildwood, ON

Given that I'm told that I may be substituting for Mr. Byrne again, could I get some background or a filler or some material from the clerk—

10:25 a.m.

NDP

The Chair David Christopherson

Of course.
