Senators discuss two different pieces of legislation during the meeting.
Committee members first hear witnesses on the government’s Northern Jobs and Growth Act. Bill C-47 was introduced to ensure economic growth and long-term prosperity in Canada’s North. Assistant deputy minister Janet King, manager Camille Vézina and analyst Janice Traynor from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada testify.
Senators then move to clause-by-clause consideration of Bill S-15, the Expansion and Conservation of Canada’s National Parks Act.
UPDATE: Bills C-47 and S-15 both received royal assent on June 19.
