I call this meeting to order.
Welcome to the 23rd 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 of you who are joining via video conference, I will remind you that when speaking you should be on the same channel as the language you are speaking, and please use your headsets.
As usual, please direct your remarks through the chair.
As I understand, there are no ministerial announcements today.
We will now proceed to presenting petitions.
I remind members that any petition presented during a meeting of this special committee must have already been certified by the clerk of petitions.
For members participating in person, I ask that they please come and drop their signed certificates off at the table once the petition is presented.
I would ask members to be very brief and concise, and to summarize the exact content of the petition.
We will continue.
The first person presenting a petition today is Ms. May.
