Thank you, Mr. Chair.
We completely agree with the intent of the proposed amendment. However, in amendment LIB-7 we will propose, we maintain that objective of reflecting the diversity of Canadian society, without, however, specifying what groups should be represented. We actually believe that adding that list may lead to groups that are not specifically mentioned feeling excluded and the impression being given that their point of view is not considered important. We think it is preferable to keep to the most broad objective of diversity, without naming specific groups.
