NDP

Peggy Nash NDP Parkdale—High Park, ON

It's just a point of clarification. I'm not 100% clear about the letter you're referring to, but I don't believe it was a member of the NDP who sent that—

Conservative

Shelly Glover Conservative Saint Boniface, MB

No, it might have been the Bloc.

Yes.

Conservative

Shelly Glover Conservative Saint Boniface, MB

We're going to get it, anyway.

NDP

Peggy Nash NDP Parkdale—High Park, ON

Yes, I don't believe it was an NDP member who wrote the letter.

Conservative

Shelly Glover Conservative Saint Boniface, MB

There were two members.

Conservative

The Chair Conservative James Rajotte

Okay, let's get a copy of the letter and then we'll clarify that.

9:15 p.m.

NDP

Wayne Marston NDP Hamilton East—Stoney Creek, ON

What was the date of the letter?

9:15 p.m.

Conservative

Randy Hoback Conservative Prince Albert, SK

It was chaired by two party members, so you might have an opposition party member and a government party member. And depending on the time the letter was written, it could have been a time when the Liberals actually were in power or the minority government was in process. So it would have come from the chairs, I'm sure.

Conservative

The Chair Conservative James Rajotte

Thank you. We appreciate that.

Seeing no further questions, Ms. Hemmings, we thank you so much for staying and being our last witness tonight. We appreciate your time.

Colleagues, I appreciate all of your time this evening.

We should also give a special thank you to the parliamentary staff who have kindly stayed. Thank you so much.

Colleagues, we will resume again on Monday at 3:30. I'll just indicate that we will actually have officials for the first three hours of that day. Also, with regard to the schedule, we will be sitting until 9:30 on Monday, as agreed to by all the parties.

Have a wonderful week next week in your constituencies, and we'll see you on May 28.

The meeting is adjourned.
