Thank you, Madam Chair. There is also another recommendation and another motion to support the recommendations by the CEO. This motion is with regard to a partnership development with some government departments for a web-based interactive educational site.

Just for clarification, when you say for participation for youths in schools, is this also for Aurora College and other institutions or just specifically for schools?

Thank you, Madam Chair. That's a good question. As recommended to us in the report of the CEO, the problem is that young people are participating in elections in increasingly shrinking numbers.

Like Canada's federal Chief Electoral Officer, Mr. Kingsley, in the last federal election quite an extensive nation-wide program was launched aimed at the young people. So while the program here is suggesting web-based for schools, educational institutions, it would have a big platform to jump elsewhere. So that was the focus, Madam Chair. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Chair. At this time, I believe I am moving the last motion. I move that this committee recommends that a comprehensive review of the Elections Act be undertaken by the Chief Electoral Officer and a revised act be presented to the Legislative Assembly for consideration;

And further, that the Plebiscite Act be repealed and that the provisions for the administration for plebiscite and referendum be integrated into the revised Election Act. Thank you, Madam Chair.
