The Chair Conservative Joe Preston

Great.

I thank you all. And I thank you for the respectfulness of the questions today and how we didn't wander into what should not be said in public session.

Thank you very much. It was a great first start. I thank you for starting us off on this mission. As you may have heard, we're not quite sure where it's going next, but we have some other witnesses in mind, and we'll move there.

Tom Lukiwski Conservative Regina—Lumsden—Lake Centre, SK

I was just wondering if we want to take a few minutes on committee business, since we've had another point of privilege referred to us. Plus, my understanding is that Monsieur Ménard is making a statement about wanting to come before this committee as well.

The Chair Conservative Joe Preston

Let's go in camera then, and we'll do committee business, with the will of the committee.

We'll suspend for a minute.
