First of all, I wasn't actually thinking of inviting anyone as a witness. I agree that would be unprecedented. It's not unprecedented to take something and just set it aside until a question is answered. I know this from personal experience, because this committee did that with a motion that I had proposed. They had to deal with the question of whether or not that motion was permissible for a private member's bill, to produce a motion to amend the Constitution. In fact, it was to amend part of the Constitution that deals with the power to take over public works for the benefit of all of Canada. It's just an irony, but the point is that all I'm asking is that it be set aside.
If I were guessing, I'd say there's a 75% chance that what is in here is completely constitutionally acceptable. At the next meeting, once the question is answered, we'll be able to vote in favour. However, there is a 25% chance that it is not. The question to me really boils down to the nature of the Shannon Citizens' Committee—if it is actually a creation of the municipal government or if it is totally non-governmental. That's the question I'm seeking to answer.
It's just to set it aside and deal with it that way.
