Hon. Scott Brison (President of the Treasury Board, Lib.)

Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker, not just the Speaker, but a member of Parliament from Nova Scotia, of whom we are tremendously proud. I speak on behalf of all Nova Scotians when I say that.

I have the honour to table, in both official languages, on behalf of 83 departments and agencies, the departmental plans for 2017-18.

The good news continues, Mr. Speaker. There have been consultations among the parties, and I believe you would find agreement for the following motion:

That, notwithstanding the Order made February 23, 2017, to refer Votes 1 and 5 of the Main Estimates for the year 2017-18 of PPP Canada Inc. to the Standing Committee on Finance, the said Votes 1 and 5 be withdrawn from that committee and referred to the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.
