The Chair Conservative David Tilson

I call the meeting to order.

In the next hour we have Mr. Martin Collacott, who is representing the Centre for Immigration Policy Reform. Mr. Collacott has appeared before this committee many times, and on Bill C-31 dealing with backlog and security issues.

The other two witnesses are Mr. Lorne Waldman, who is the president of the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers, and Mr. Angus Grant, who is a lawyer with that group.

I welcome the three of you to the immigration committee. We look forward to hearing your presentations.

Mr. Waldman and Mr. Grant, you have 10 minutes between you.
