We now begin the 137th meeting of the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage. We are continuing our consideration of Bill C-369, An Act to amend the Bills of Exchange Act, the Interpretation Act and the Canada Labour Code (National Indigenous Peoples Day).
I'd like to start by apologizing to the witnesses for the fact that you have had to wait. Thank you for your patience.
Also, to give a little shout-out, we saw a person jumping over to set up the camera. This is actually going to be our last meeting of the heritage committee for this sitting, and I would like to take a moment to thank all of the staff who provide support to us every day.
I also want to thank the interpreters.
We wouldn't be able to do the work we do if we didn't have a big team around us helping. I know we're going to be short on time at the end, so I wanted to make sure we said a big thank you to everyone who helps us out.
Because we have reduced time for our committee hearing, we will go straight through all the witness testimony one after the other. We have someone who is being heard remotely, but she does not appear to be up on the screen yet, so I was going to start with the Canadian Labour Congress.
No, I take that back. I am going to start with Phyllis Webstad from the Orange Shirt Society. That way, if we have any technical problems, we can bring her back.
Ms. Webstad, if you feel comfortable with beginning, your time can begin now.
