Last month, expert presenters shared their thoughts with the committee which is made up of MLAs from all parties in the legislature.

The committee will compile their findings from the hearings in a report which is expected to be tabled in the fall.

Premier Brian Gallant will then take the report to the first minister’s meeting in October.
