Mr. Chairman, if hon. members think it is humorous, let them laugh. That is about the only thing they have done since parliament opened. May I point out that although amending this clause may delay matters somewhat, I would invite the minister's attention to the fact that if, after the word "proceedings," the clause had continued "including the establishment of advisory and other committees" established by the board, the clause would indicate very clearly that the board may establish bylaws for the regulation of its activities, just as the clause now reads, as well as for the regulation of committees of the board which may be established. But I would eliminate what I call an
innocuous expression, namely "and generally for the conduct of its activities". All that the minister wants the clause to do is to give the board latitude to adopt bylaws for the regulation of its proceedings. That is what I think the committee would gladly grant, but not anything further than what is defined.
