LAC Main Estimates: Committee Hearing

On Thursday the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage held its first hearing on the 2018-19 Main Estimates. Minister Melanie Joly made an opening statement and took questions from three committee members, each for a seven minute period. All questioners were members from Quebec. The video record is here.

In her opening statement the Minister made reference to the funding request for the new joint LAC - Ottawa Public Library facility, the only mention of an LAC initiative.

The session was cut short as the bells rang for a vote in the House of Commons.

As the committee typically meets on Tuesday and Thursday the continuation of the hearing will likely occur next week. Will nearly $109 million of tax expenditures for LAC be approved by the committee on the nod?
