In relation to what was brought forward by Mr. Volpe, obviously he has some amendments, and he understands that these amendments may be challenged as a result of a royal recommendation or in fact the scope of the bill itself. I would ask that the legislative assistant or the clerk provide to the committee, if possible, the predetermination in writing as to what their position is on these amendments and the original bill. If we need to move the bill first, before we can receive that, I think it's quite ludicrous, but I understand there are procedures here. Really, the government only wants to get this bill put forward.
I understand Mr. Volpe's concern, and I simply want to make mention of this. It was suggested that the government and the minister are trying to distance themselves from making decisions. I think Mr. Uppal made it very clear that the people who are most affected, the families that are most affected, by what took place some 65 years ago are the people who should make that determination. I think this government is showing sensitivity in relation to that by at least allowing the council to be appointed based on a merit principle, as Mr. Uppal has said, and to move forward to make that decision as to the content and also the location of the memorial itself. On that basis, I would like that determination.
