Good morning, everyone. This is meeting number 57 of the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security. It is Tuesday, March 1, 2011. Today we are going to the clause-by-clause stage in our consideration of Bill C-17, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (investigative hearing and recognizance with conditions).
We have with us, to assist us if need be, from the Department of Justice, Douglas Breithaupt, director and general counsel, and Glenn Gilmour, counsel, the criminal law policy section.
We have five amendments that were given to the chair this morning, and all five deal with clause 4, if I'm not mistaken, so we'll move right into it.
I should also remind the committee that we are prepared to finish this today. We have reserved this room until 2 o'clock, but that doesn't mean we have to stretch it out that long.
