CHAIRMAN

Mr. Bill Horne

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: I call the meeting to order. Welcome to the Human Resources Committee, the monthly meeting in January. I’d like to say we won’t have a presenter today since we asked them not to come on Tuesday, when the storm was here, and we’re setting up another date. So be patient, we’ll have them in the next month?

 

MS. KIM LANGILLE (Legislative Committee Clerk): No, it will be a couple months down the road.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: A couple of reminders to have your phones off or on vibrate. The washrooms are down to the left, to the right, and to the left again. With that, I think we can start. (Interruption) We should start by having people introduce themselves.

 

[The committee members introduced themselves.]

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Okay, the first is to appoint our nominees to the agencies, boards and commissions. I can take a motion - if you want to start, Ms. Miller.

 

MS. MARGARET MILLER: Mr. Chairman, I move that the following be appointed to the Fisheries and Aquaculture Loan Board: Peter Corey as vice-chair and member, and Denny Morrow, Claude Poirier, and Patricia R. Rhynold as members.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

For the Department of Community Services, Mr. Rankin.

 

MR. IAIN RANKIN: Mr. Chairman, I move that Allan J. Farrell and Samuel John Morrison be appointed to the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority as board members.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

Next is the Eastern Mainland Housing Authority. Mr. Jessome.

 

MR. BEN JESSOME: Mr. Chairman, I move that Brian Barkhouse be appointed to the Eastern Mainland Housing Authority as a board member.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

Next is the Western Region Housing Authority. Mr. Stroink.

 

MR. JOACHIM STROINK: Mr. Chairman, I move that William M. Carroll be appointed to the Western Region Housing Authority as a board member.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

For the Department of Health and Wellness, Mr. Jessome.

 

MR. JESSOME: Mr. Chairman, I move that Jasmine Ghosn, Denise MacDonald- Billard, and Andrew Mott be appointed to the Nova Scotia College of Respiratory Therapists as board members.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

For the Department of Justice, Ms. Miller.

 

MS. MILLER: Mr. Chairman, I move that Steve Graham, Valerie MacKenzie, and Kent Noseworthy be appointed to the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia Board of Governors as members.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

The Law Reform Commission of Nova Scotia. Mr. Rankin.

 

MR. RANKIN: Mr. Chairman, I move that Catherine D.A. Watson be appointed to the Law Reform Commission of Nova Scotia as a member.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

Mr. Jessome, the Legal Aid Commission of Nova Scotia.

 

MR. JESSOME: Mr. Chairman, I move that Barbara Darby, Frank Gillis, Brian MacLellan, and Lisa Reiten be appointed to the Legal Aid Commission of Nova Scotia as part-time directors.

 

MR. CHAIRMAN: Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.

 

The motion is carried.

 

That completes the nominations to the boards and their acceptance on the boards. We do have some pieces of correspondence. Are there any issues coming up with the correspondence that you’ve received - you should have three pieces? Not hearing any issues, they are accepted.

 

I guess that now brings us to looking at the next meeting. The next meeting is proposed for Tuesday, February 24, 2015, at the normal time - from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. There will be a presentation by the FOIPOP Review Officer. Is there any discussion?

 

Are there any other issues that need to be brought up? Not hearing any, we shall adjourn.

 

[The committee adjourned at 12:04 a.m.]
