CHAIRMAN

Mr. Chuck Porter

 

            MR. CHAIRMAN: Order, please. We’ll call the committee to order this morning. It’s just now 10:00 a.m. Just a reminder before we get started: we welcome you all here, but if you have cellphones, if you could turn them on vibrate or off. I will do that myself because I know it’s on.

 

            We have a couple of appointments this morning. That’s all that’s on the agenda other than some correspondence, but before we get into that, we’ll just take a moment and do some introductions.

 

            [The committee members introduced themselves.]

 

            MR. CHAIRMAN: We have a bit of correspondence: Department of Education and Early Childhood Development information that was requested from the May 31st meeting. I think everyone has received that. Is that correct? Anyone who doesn’t have it, let Monica know, and she’d be happy to provide that for you.

 

            We’ll go to our next agenda item: our appointments. The appointment this morning is the Department of Business, the Peggy’s Cove Commission. Do I have someone who would like to - Ms. Treen.

 

            MS. JOYCE TREEN: I move that the following be approved for the Peggy’s Cove Commission: John Campbell as member and chair, Gary Logan as member and vice-chair, and Augustus Garrison and Peter Richardson as members.

 

            MR. CHAIRMAN: Thank you for moving that, but just a correction on the name: I think it’s Aonghus.

 

            MS. TREEN: Aonghus - oh, sorry.

 

            MR. CHAIRMAN: I just wanted to clarify and make sure you were looking at the right name.

 

            It has been moved. Is there any discussion?

 

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

 

            The motion is carried.

 

            There, we have the business of the day done. Our next meeting date is Tuesday, August 30th, at 10:00 a.m. We will be doing agencies, boards and commissions, and agenda setting.

 

            I believe there is one witness left on, so if caucuses could send their lists to Monica, please, we will have that on the agenda. I know there will be some discussion at the next meeting around some of those that Ms. MacFarlane has brought forward. We’re certainly happy to discuss that at that time.

 

            With no further business, we’ll adjourn this meeting. Have a great day.

 

            [The committee adjourned at 10:03 a.m.]
