DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROTECTION ACT, 2000 / LOI DE 2000 SUR LA PROTECTION CONTRE LA VIOLENCE FAMILIALE

Consideration of Bill 117, An Act to better protect victims of domestic violence / Projet de loi 117, Loi visant à mieux protéger les victimes de violence familiale.

The Chair (Ms Marilyn Mushinski): I call the meeting to order. This is a continuation of clause-by-clause consideration of Bill 117, An Act to better protect victims of domestic violence. I should just read into the record the order that was passed last week.

"That, pursuant to standing order 46 and notwithstanding any other standing order or special order of the House relating to Bill 117, An Act to better protect victims of domestic violence, when the standing committee on justice and social policy next meets for the purpose of considering the bill, the Chair shall put every question necessary to dispose of this stage of the bill without further debate or amendment; and

"That, any divisions required shall be deferred until all remaining questions have been put and taken in succession with one 20-minute waiting period allowed pursuant to standing order 127(a)."

At the last committee meeting, we were at section 4, Liberal amendment 5, which had been moved by Mr Bryant. We will take the vote on that amendment.

Mr Michael Bryant (St Paul's): Madam Chair, can we get a recorded vote on that amendment?

The Chair: You may certainly have a recorded vote on that, yes. In other words, you want recorded votes on every clause?

Mr Bryant: No, just on this amendment.

The Chair: OK. If it's a recorded vote, we have to stand this down until the end. So we'll move on.

Shall section 5 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 6 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 7 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 8 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 9 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 10 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 11 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Would members of the committee prefer, rather than going through section by section, that we go right through, inclusive, except for the amendment?

Mr Peter Kormos (Niagara Centre): With respect, Chair, I think you're bound by the motion that the majority brutally imposed upon the minority in terms of time allocation, which would require you to put them section by section.

The Chair: But if I got unanimous consent, we could go from section 12 through section 24, inclusive, if committee, in the interests of time--you want to go clause-by clause? That's fine.

Then, shall section 12 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 13 carry? All in favour? Opposed? Carried.

Shall section 14 carry? All in favour? Opposed? Carried.

Shall section 15 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 16 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 17 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 18 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 19 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 20 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 21 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 22 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 23 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall section 24 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

We go back to Liberal amendment 5, as moved by Mr Bryant. Shall that amendment carry?

Mr Kormos: Recorded vote.

The Chair: Yes, we'll take the recorded vote.

AYES

Bryant, Kormos, McLeod.

NAYS

Dunlop, Elliott, Molinari, Tilson.

The Chair: That does not carry.

Shall section 4 carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall the title of the bill carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall Bill 117, as amended, carry? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

Shall I report the bill, as amended, to the House? All in favour? Opposed? That carries.

The meeting is adjourned.

The committee adjourned at 1543.
