Honourable committee members, I see a quorum.
I must inform members of the committee that, as the clerk, I can only receive motions for the election of the chair. I cannot receive other types of motions, cannot entertain points of order, nor can I participate in debate.
We can now proceed to the election of the chair. Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the chair must be a member of the official opposition.
I am now ready to receive motions for the nomination of the chair.
