Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to call to order this session of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights, completing our clause-by-clause review of Bill C-14. When I use the word “completing”, I do mean completing.
I congratulate the members of the committee on their expeditious work so far, and hopefully today will be as collaborative as yesterday was.
Unfortunately, we have the challenge of the bells. We'll try to get as much done as possible between votes, and we'll figure out, when we go for the second vote, whether it pays to come back before the third vote or whether we stay there and just come back after the third vote. I guess we'll figure it out based on timing.
