I call the meeting to order.
Members of the committee, the first thing I would like to do is to report on the steering committee meeting that we held yesterday. Basically what happened is this.
You see there is a motion, agreed to by all parties, that on June 12 the committee proceed to look at blue-green algae, which Mr. Crête put forward as a proposal. I asked each of the four people to put forward the topic they would like to see us do in the next four meetings. Basically, when we left the meeting yesterday, I presume everyone had agreed with June 12 to discuss phosphorus and the algae bloom situation.
Mr. McGuinty and the others could not agree on what should happen to the next meeting. As I understood it, Mr. McGuinty would be bringing forward a motion regarding the meeting of Thursday, June 14.
Mr. Cullen suggested that we go on, and that for the following week, on Tuesday, we look at smog, and on the Thursday, we look at clean coal technology.
So basically that was it, more or less. Now, the only thing that was solidly agreed upon by all members yesterday was that on June 12 we would look at blue-green algae, and that this would be the topic. On the rest we could not get consensus, and so again we needed to bring it back to you for you to look at.
So you see the report of the subcommittee in front of you. We now have another motion from Mr. McGuinty, which of course we'll deal with next. Let's look at this motion first, which was, as I say, a unanimous decision of the committee for June 12.
Basically, there's not much point in having steering committee meetings and agreeing to something unanimously, and then seeing a motion an hour later. I find that--
