At any rate, we're here now. This is the 24th meeting of the Special Committee on Electoral Reform. The format today is that each of the two presenters will present for 10 minutes. We'll see how it goes, but we may go to the second group of presenters right away, for 10 minutes each. Then we'll have a question-and-answer session, the public session, from 4:15 to 5 o'clock. After each set of presentations, there will be one round of questions from members, at five minutes each. That includes the answer. Both fit into the five-minute time slot.
We have with us this afternoon Mr. Michael Boda, the Chief Electoral Officer of Saskatchewan.
Thank you very much for being here, Mr. Boda, and for taking part in the discussion on the important topic of electoral reform.
We also have Professor Charles Smith from St. Thomas More College at the University of Saskatchewan. We thank him as well for being here.
Perhaps we could start with Mr. Boda for 10 minutes, please.
