I call this meeting to order.
Welcome to the 18th meeting of the House of Commons Special Committee on the COVID-19 Pandemic.
As a reminder to all members, to avoid issues with sound, members participating in person should also not be connected to the video conference.
For those joining us via videoconference, I would like to remind you that, when speaking, you should be on the same channel as the language you are speaking.
In addition, please direct your remarks through the Chair.
Also, a reminder that today's proceedings will be televised.
Finally, on this note, I would like to remind members participating in video conference or in person that they should follow the usual dress code in place in the House.
We will now proceed to Ministerial Announcements.
I understand there are no ministerial announcements, so we'll move on to presenting petitions.
I would like to remind members that any petition presented during a meeting of the Special Committee on the COVID-19 Pandemic must have already been certified by the clerk of petitions.
For members participating in person, we ask that you please drop off the signed certificates at the table once the petition is presented.
The first petition being presented goes to Ms. May.
