I'd like to call the meeting of the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development to order. This is meeting number 50. Today we're meeting to continue our study of licensed hunting and trapping in Canada.
Appearing by video conference we have Mr. Mark Boyce, professor, of the department of biological sciences, University of Alberta.
We also have by video conference two of our witnesses whom we were unable to connect with earlier. Thank you for your patience.
From Manitoba Wildlife Federation we have Ron Olson, managing director; and from Delta Waterfowl Foundation Jonathan Scarth, senior vice-president.
Thank you to all of you.
