Consideration of Bill 55, An Act to enact the Ontario French-language Educational Communications Authority Act, 2008 and make complementary amendments to the Ontario Educational Communications Authority Act / Projet de loi 55, Loi édictant la Loi de 2008 sur l'Office des télécommunications éducatives de langue française de l'Ontario et apportant des modifications complémentaires à la Loi sur l'Office de la télécommunication éducative de l'Ontario.

The Chair (Mr. Pat Hoy): Good morning. The Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs will come to order. We're here this morning for clause-by-clause consideration of Bill 55.

For the committee's information, there were no amendments sent to the clerk prior to the deadline, so we will go into clause-by-clause.

We will begin with section 1. As I said, there were no amendments. Are there any comments?

Mr. Peter Shurman: I would just like to make a comment on behalf of the Progressive Conservative Party. We will propose no amendments to this bill in the clause-by-clause, so you can proceed as you proceed. But we'll have no comment at all.

Mme France Gélinas: Je pourrais faire à peu près les mêmes commentaires que mon collègue vient de faire. Nous aussi, nous sommes très satisfaits avec ce projet de loi. On est contents que ça va aller de l'avant et nous ne proposons aucun amendement. Merci.

The Chair (Mr. Pat Hoy): All right, then.

Shall section 1 carry? All in favour? Carried.

Shall section 2 carry? All in favour? Carried.

Shall section 3 carry? All in favour? Carried.

Shall section 4 carry? All in favour? Carried.

Shall section 5 carry? All in favour? Carried.

Would the committee prefer to just call all sections from 6 to the end, inclusive, and have one vote or do you want me to call them? Is that okayâ€"it has been done beforeâ€"with your permission, just to call the sections, inclusive, and vote once? Agreed.

Shall sections 6 through 26, inclusive, carry? All in favour? Carried. Thank you very much.

Shall the title of the bill carry? All in favour? Carried.

Shall Bill 55 carry? All in favour? Carried.

Shall I report the bill to the House? All in favour? Carried.

We are adjourned.

The committee adjourned at 0907.
