Clerk of the Committee (Ms Donna Pajeska): Honourable members, it is my duty to call upon you to elect a Chair. Are there any nominations?

Mr Ron Hansen (Lincoln): I nominate Christel Haeck, the MPP for St Catharines-Brock, as Chair of this committee.

Clerk of the Committee: Thank you. Any further nominations? Okay, I now declare the nominations closed and Ms Haeck be elected Chair.

The Chair (Ms Christel Haeck): Thank you.

Mr Hansen: Congratulations.

The Chair: Thank you to my nominators and all the hard work of campaigning.

Mr Hansen: Do you stand or decline?

The Chair: I do stand and I will accept and I thank my nominator.


The Chair: Oh, right. No great promises made and get on with it. Yes, I know. It's probably the best way of approaching it.


The Chair: We have as our next order of business the election of Vice-Chair. So the formal response to this is: Honourable members, it is my duty to call upon you to elect a Vice-Chair. Are there any nominations?

Mr Hansen: I nominate Ellen MacKinnon for Vice-Chair of this committee.

The Chair: Are there any other nominations? Seeing none, I declare the nominations closed and that Mrs Ellen MacKinnon be elected Vice-Chair.


The Chair: We will need a motion to appoint a subcommittee. Is there a mover?

Mr Derek Fletcher (Guelph): I move that a subcommittee on regulations and private bills standing committee business be appointed to meet from time to time at the call of the Chair or at the request of any member thereof to consider and report to the committee on the business of the committee; that substitution be permitted on the subcommittee; that the presence of all members of the subcommittee is necessary to constitute a quorum; and that the subcommittee be composed of the following members: Ms Haeck as Chair, Mrs MacKinnon, Mr Eddy and Mr Jordan.

The Chair: Very good. We do have a duly formulated motion. All those in favour?

Mr Hansen: John, you in favour of this?

The Chair: Any further discussion? Sorry -- any discussion? It's a standard motion, but is there any discussion about the motion? Thank you. All those in favour? You've done that, but -- thank you. There is no opposition to this, so let us say that it is carried.

The next item of business would be adjournment, but before we move to that, I do want to ask the clerk: Do we have some bills that are to come before us?

Clerk of the Committee: Yes, we do have six bills right now which stand referred to the committee. Within the next week I'll be scheduling them, so we may have a meeting next Wednesday, if that's the wish of the committee.

The Chair: Okay. So I would ask the individuals from each caucus to arrange a subcommittee meeting, if that's in order, to deal with what schedules are coming up. Okay? So at our next meeting, we will consider those bills that have been referred to this committee.

This committee now stands adjourned.

The committee adjourned at 1010.
