The second one I would have a problem supporting because the words “direct and timely” are already in there. But the first one I agree with, that you can't expand the preamble without a change within the body of the bill.

Can you separate your ruling?

12:10 p.m.

Conservative

Colin Carrie Conservative Oshawa, ON

On a point of order, Mr. Chair, despite the back and forth, you've made a ruling. We're not here to debate your ruling. We should move forward.

12:10 p.m.

Liberal

The Chair Liberal Bill Casey

All right.

I've made my ruling, so that's true.

12:10 p.m.

NDP

Don Davies NDP Vancouver Kingsway, BC

I'm sorry, I have no choice but to challenge your ruling. It's incorrect.

12:10 p.m.

Liberal

The Chair Liberal Bill Casey

All right.

I move a motion to sustain my ruling. All in favour of sustaining my ruling? All opposed?

12:15 p.m.

Don Davies NDP Vancouver Kingsway, BC

Can I have a recorded vote, Mr. Chair?

12:15 p.m.

Liberal

The Chair Liberal Bill Casey

Can we have a recorded vote.

Colin Carrie Conservative Oshawa, ON

On point of order, if he wanted a recorded vote, wasn't he supposed to ask before the vote?

12:15 p.m.

The Chair Liberal Bill Casey

I don't know.

12:15 p.m.

The Clerk

Yes.

Liberal

The Chair Liberal Bill Casey

Okay. Thank you.

It's too late.

All right, that's amendment NDP-2. Now we go to amendment LIB-2. Again, it's inadmissible.

Mr. Eyolfson.

I'm not going to challenge the ruling. I would just like to say for the record why I had added this.

I'm in agreement that it's difficult to make this inclusive of the entire population. I found there were groups of people who are performing many of the same duties, particularly health care providers. A tremendous amount of our workforce is doing much of the same work. There are similar kinds of work in public health and safety which I thought should have been included. However, if the procedure says I can't make that change in the preamble without a corresponding change in the ruling, I understand that. I just thought it was important that it be added to the bill, and hopefully at some time in the future it might be amended.

Thank you.

12:15 p.m.

Liberal

The Chair Liberal Bill Casey

All right. Thank you very much.
