At the moment, I think that would be a discussion. Right now, we have to pass the motion. We don't have to pass the motion if we want to study it.... We are just going to pass a motion so that we can get on with the analysts looking at the scope and doing all these kinds of things.
Can we vote on the motion?
As I said to Mr. Anderson, we can discuss the scope of the motion in another meeting. Today we just want to pass the motion as amended.
Those in favour of the motion as amended?
(Motion as amended agreed to [See Minutes of Proceedings])
Good. That's that.
We will get to discussing the scope, etc., at another meeting. In the meantime, there is some other business we need to attend to.
As you know, we had passed a motion from Monsieur Nantel that we ask the minister to come and present on the main estimates. We have until May 31 to report to the House, so we need to bring the minister in prior to that.
The minister responded to the letter I wrote on behalf of the committee. She said that she has a conflict regarding any appearance on a Tuesday or a Thursday between now and May 31 because of her timelines. She is asking whether we would consider meeting as a committee on Wednesday, May 10, or Wednesday, May 17, between 12 noon and one o'clock. It would be a one-hour meeting to do the estimates.
I need you to think about that. The minister is suggesting that Tuesdays and Thursdays are already booked for her between now and May 31, but she could look at Wednesday, May 10, from noon to one o'clock, or Wednesday, May 17, from noon to one o'clock.
Can I have some discussion on this? Or will I just pick a day and ask people to support it?
Mr. Nantel, do you have something to say about this?
