Thank you, everyone, for being here.
I want to welcome Mr. Brault, director and chief executive officer of the Canada Council for the Arts. Thank you for coming.
I am sorry to keep you waiting. We have an hour with you, so we will go however long we need to today. You know how it works. You have 10 minutes to tell us what you want about the Canada Council, your future plans, and so on. Then, of course, we will have questions by members.
Mr. Brault, please begin.
