The Chair (Ms Frances
Lankin): I call the meeting to order. We are here today
under order of reference from the House of Tuesday, December 23.
Today's business is to begin clause-by-clause of Bill 33, An Act
to require fair dealing between parties to franchise agreements,
to ensure that franchisees have the right to associate and to
impose disclosure obligations on franchisors. Mr Martin?
Mr Tony Martin (Sault
Ste Marie): Mr Dunlop looks a little lonesome over
there. I think maybe we should just move ahead.
Mr Garfield Dunlop
(Simcoe North): That's what I was worried about.
Mr Martin: I
move to defer the discussion of clause-by-clause on Bill 33 to
May 3, 2000, next Wednesday.
OK, there's a motion before us. Is there any debate of this
motion? Seeing none, all those in favour please indicate.
We'll adjourn and resume next
Wednesday, May 3, for clause-by-clause of Bill 33.
