Okay, I just want members to know that when we did receive the letter signed by a majority of members on this, the clerk and I did action that because that is a majority of the committee, and we did ask the House of Commons for not only resources for an extra meeting. I've said that moving forward.... Basically, we would like to be in the race for those extra slots moving forward because that's the intention of the committee.
We've also asked for that extra hour at the beginning of each meeting because if you look at the work plan we're suggesting to you, sometimes instead of using two meetings from a report, it is that extra half hour or hour that could help us save a meeting.
I do think there might be an opportunity to actually do a little bit of it all because we will also have to make sure we have witnesses appearing for those extra committees, and we can't mandate their schedules. I do think that the concept of a little bit of flexibility should just be noted for the work that is done on this side of the room.
I'm going to continue with Madam Romanado and Madam Gaudreau. I think Mr. Cooper is on the list again and then Ms. Blaney.
