I'll call this meeting to order.
Welcome to the 21st meeting of the House of Commons Special Committee on the COVID-19 Pandemic.
A reminder to all members that in order to avoid issues with sound, members participating in person should not also be connected to the video conference.
For those joining via video conference, I would like to remind you that when you're speaking you should be on the same channel as the language that you're speaking.
As usual, please direct your remarks through the chair.
I understand that we don't have any ministerial announcements today.
We'll go on to presenting petitions.
I would like to remind members that any petition presented during a meeting of the special committee must have already been certified by the clerk of petitions.
For members participating in person, we ask that they please come and drop the signed certificate off at the table once the petition is presented.
Our first petition will be presented by Mr. Genuis.
