I really appreciate that, Madam Chair.
Later this spring, we will also convene a gathering in Canada of major English and French news organizations as part of the Facebook journalism project's series of round tables to listen and learn from media organizations and to collaboratively begin designing new products optimized for publishers.
Finally, we will partner with key Canadian stakeholders in the development of news literacy resources to promote critical thinking and judgment when reading and consuming news content. We are pleased to announce that MediaSmarts, Canada's digital literacy organization, has agreed to work with us on this exciting new initiative, and we expect to partner with a few other leading Canadian organizations on this important project in the months ahead.
Facebook is committed to creating a more open and more connected world. We believe our mission will help people all over the world be better informed, more empathetic, and more productive.
Our responsibility as regards the spreading of false news is an integral part of this commitment and we take it very seriously. In just three months, we have taken a number of initiatives, both on our platform and in cooperation with community stakeholders through our Facebook journalism project. I am excited to be working closely with my colleague Marc Dinsdale to further these initiatives in Canada.
I want to thank the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage for listening to our presentation, and I am now pleased to answer any questions you may have.
