Good afternoon, colleagues. Today is the 51st meeting of our committee.
We will examine Bill C-627, An Act to amend the Railway Safety Act (safety of persons and property).
Joining us are two witnesses from the Department of Transport: Brigitte Diogo and Rachel Heft. They are here to answer any questions members may have. There will be no presentations as such.
I suggest that we proceed with the clause-by-clause consideration, as proposed on the agenda.
We will start with clause 1, which can be debated.
(Clause 1 agreed to)
(On clause 2)
We move to the NDP-1 amendment to clause 2.
Ms. Morin, do you want to justify your amendment?
