I understand there's an agreement to observe a moment of silence in honour of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands by Canadian Forces and the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
[A moment of silence observed]
We'll now proceed to the period for presenting petitions, which will not exceed 15 minutes.
I would like to remind members that any petition during a meeting of the special committee must have already been certified by the clerk of petitions. Once a member has presented their petition, we ask that they please come and drop it off at the table.
Presenting petitions, Mr. Motz.
