Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you for being here today. It is very important. You can appreciate just how difficult it is for us to understand all the specifics of your work.
In the section of your paper entitled “Applying suitable practices and analytical techniques”, it reads:
Did the policy or program analysis compare environmental, social, and economic benefits and costs and identify necessary mitigating measures?
The last time you were here, I seem to recall that you tensed up or that you froze when asked about interpreting government policies. Is this statement on policy analysis not contradictory? Or do you believe that you have an opportunity to analyze policies and to express your views openly? It seems to somewhat contradict what you told us the last time you were here.
