Chair, I just have a point before you conclude the meeting.
Given that we're talking about democracy and participation, I had raised the issue before, although I don't think we took a decision. You will recall that in 2013 we reviewed the BOIE. Again, because that represents the interests of all members of the House and the three political parties that are recognized, it doesn't cover everyone in the House. We still have independents. The issue of the Green Party—let's call it what it is—in the debates or out of the debates, as Mr. Reid has noted, has often been a point of controversy in the past.
I'm wondering, in the 2013 example, the language we used was that one member who is not a member of a recognized party be allowed to participate in the hearings as a temporary, non-voting member of the committee.
Rather than going to a motion and creating any possible division, I just wonder how colleagues feel about adopting that and allowing the independents to have that opportunity for a say here. They would be members, and they have every right, but they can't vote. Just in the element of fairness I wonder what people's thoughts are, Chair.
