Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I'm worried that the amendment could negatively affect the reporting structure between the board, the commissioner and the minister.
The board should be able to decide when it is necessary to present a report to the minister. This amendment would require every communication between the board and the commissioner to also be conveyed to the minister, providing no discretion for the board with regard to the sharing of information. This could lead to every draft of every document possibly being shared before any advice has been finalized by the board.
