The committee met at 1401 in committee room 1.


The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): I call this meeting of the Standing Committee on Social Policy to order. According to the agenda, we are meeting today to discuss chemotherapy drugs. Just prior to going into closed session for the debate, we have a motion from the subcommittee report to deal with the public hearings starting tomorrow. We’d like the whole committee to consider that subcommittee report before we go into closed session so staff can get on with arranging tomorrow’s meeting. We have a motion. Mrs. Elliott?

Mrs. Christine Elliott: Yes, Chair. I’d be happy to make the motion.

Your subcommittee met on Monday, October 7, 2013, to consider the method of proceeding on Bill 36, An Act to enact the Local Food Act, 2013, and recommends the following:

(1) That, in addition to the motion carried in full committee regarding Bill 36 on Monday, September 23, 2013, the subcommittee recommends the following:

(2) That the committee Clerk, in consultation with the Chair, repost an advertisement regarding Bill 36 on the Ontario parliamentary channel, Canada NewsWire and the committee’s website.

(3) That the deadline for written submissions be 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 22, 2013.

(4) That the research officer provide a summary of the presentations by Thursday, October 24, 2013.

(5) That the committee Clerk, in consultation with the Chair, be authorized prior to the adoption of the report of the subcommittee to commence making any preliminary arrangements necessary to facilitate the committee’s proceedings.

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): I would just point out to the committee that it’s not as broad a subcommittee report as we normally have because it is according to the programming motion that was passed in the House. All other aspects of the hearings are in the programming motion, so it’s just the housekeeping, the procedural things, that we need to do in order to move this forward. With that, any comments or questions?

If not, all those in favour of the report? Opposed? The motion is carried.

That’s the only thing that we need to do. A motion to go in camera for discussion of the chemotherapy? Mrs. Elliott? Okay, we’re in camera.

The committee continued in closed session at 1404.
