Committees are central to the operations of the House of Commons for at least three basic reasons:
- they allow for the detailed examination of complex matters which is more easily done in small groups rather than an entire assembly;
- they offer an opportunity for Members to hear from Canadians and experts on topics of national concern and to have these representations placed on the public record; and
- they provide a means for Members to probe into the details of policies and programs, thereby further developing an expertise in specific areas.
Geoff currently serves as a member of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology and serves as Vice-Chair.
