I'm happy to provide clarification. We are not able—we don't have the power—to compel somebody who is not on Canadian soil, but I don't know that anybody was suggesting that we do that in this case. I think there was a suggestion that we request that individual to appear. I think there was a consensus that we simply put forward another request.
I've now heard what is clearly the consensus, which is that this additional individual should not be testifying at the same time as the Kielburgers. As was suggested by Mr. Erskine-Smith, if the member they've suggested wanted to supply us with a brief, that would be something that would be extended to anybody who would want to supply something to our committee. She is well within her rights to do that. That would be something, and if that satisfied committee members, then.... She's well within her right to do that, and the Kielburgers can ask her to do that. We will accept that, as we would from anybody else.
We'll leave it to committee members to determine additional witnesses, but I think what we got was a consensus that we wouldn't invite her for the meeting at which the Kielburgers would be testifying.
Thank you, colleagues. I think that covers everything I needed to know for this meeting. If there's nothing further, colleagues, I will adjourn the meeting.
