The Chair (Hon. Judy A. Sgro (Humber River—Black Creek, Lib.)) Liberal Judy Sgro

Welcome to this meeting number 37 of the Standing Committee on International Trade. I'm thrilled to be able to call the meeting to order.

This meeting is being held pursuant to the order of reference of January 25, and the order of reference sent to the committee on March 10.

The committee is resuming its study of Bill C-216, an act to amend the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Act (supply management).

With us today we again have the officials from the Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food and Global Affairs Canada, and, of course, our House of Commons legislative clerk to assist us during clause-by-clause consideration of the bill.

We will start to deal with Bill C-216 now.

Therefore, I will call clause 1.

Shall clause 1 carry? Is there any debate on this clause?

Mr. Savard-Tremblay, did you want to speak to this or were you raising your hand to vote?

Madam Chair, I'm sorry to interrupt.

Since there were no amendments adopted, the committee doesn't need to order a reprint of the bill.

I want to thank the witnesses for taking the time to come out this morning.

In particular, I want to thank the analysts, the interpreters and our clerks for getting us through every one of these meetings. We are now finished with Bill C-216.

We are now going to suspend and rejoin via an in camera session.
