Thank you to all the witness groups for coming today.
To Mr. Collyer and Mr. Gratton, your industry associations represent industrial groups where there is a great deal of capital intensity and investments, as well as sensitivity around the investment processes. Your industry associations also represent a great deal of employment in this country. The statistic I have for the Canadian Mining Association is 350,000 jobs within Canada. CAPP member companies employ about 500,000 people.
Given all these things, and some of the comments you've made, perhaps you could describe the importance of having predictable and efficient environmental assessments on investment within each of your industries, as well as some tangible examples where perhaps we haven't seen that, and how we can improve our processes from there.
