We have some invited guests to talk about the subject matter at hand. I understand this is an issue that's been raised in the House of Commons. I'm a little surprised that it's being raised here by no less than an honourable member who has never been to this committee.
My understanding is that the location of a hospital is something that's not in our purview. It's the responsibility of the provincial government. I find it unique, bordering on bizarre, that we have a new member, a member who has never been to the heritage committee, now championing a debate on a motion on where a hospital is going to be located, which is the responsibility of the Province of Manitoba at a time when we have invited members to speak to a very important study we are doing on media in Canada.
I would hope that the honourable member would withdraw his motion so we can go through the regular channels and can continue with the study that's so incredibly important to the work we're doing.
