I haven't received the motion yet, but I can still comment.
As I understand it, we would hold only one meeting, taking place on Thursday, instead of three meetings. I am completely opposed to that.
I was in favour of hearing from witnesses over two days. It is now almost six o'clock on Thursday. We provided the list of five witnesses whom we would like to invite, but we don't know whether all of them will be able to appear. If we want to make sure we can hear from them, we need two days to do it. I think the department officials will certainly be able to appear before the committee.
The committee should invite the witnesses to appear over two days. We talked about inviting the ministers over three days. I propose that we invite them over two days, because it will be tough to have them over three days. When the ministers appear, they are joined by department officials.
No one should be expected to do the impossible, but the witnesses should be a priority.
