Yes. Thank you, Madam Chair.
I will share my time with Mr. Samson.
Thank you, Madam Minister, for being here. It is always a pleasure to have you with us.
I will be brief. In your mandate letter it says you are to promote Canadian culture abroad. As you know, in my riding, there is the École nationale de la chanson in Granby, which trains francophone songwriters, composers and singers. In fact, it's the only school of its kind in Canada. Many recognized artists whom you probably know, such as Lisa LeBlanc, Alex Nevsky and Andréanne Malette, trained at this school, which is located in the Cégep de Granby.
My question is as follows, and you referred to it in your opening statement.
Can you tell us more about your vision for promoting Canadian cultural talent abroad, which is such an important thing?
