Ladies and gentlemen, we have a quorum.
Welcome to meeting 23 of the special Legislative Committee on Bill C-30. For those who haven't been in this room before, welcome to what's been called the war room, because this is where the war cabinet sat during the Second World War. After today's meeting, I'm sure it will be called the peace cooperation and collaboration room.
We will pick up from where we left off. Before we do that, I want to acknowledge that there's a group of young people in the room who've presented a card to the committee for its good work, for its hard work thus far, and I will present it to the committee officially but not until the committee is finished, which won't be today. It will be tomorrow or the next day, or whenever.
Thank you to the young people at the back of the room for their commitment.
That probably wasn't politically correct, but I've never been accused of that.
Anyway, we will start with BQ-14, at clause 27. It was moved yesterday by Monsieur Bigras.
(On clause 27)
