I'd like to call meeting number 54 of the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development to order.
We have appearing today at this point only three witnesses. We're waiting for the fourth. We have by audio from the Northwest Territories, Mr. Evan Walz, acting assistant deputy minister, Environment and Natural Resources. Accompanying him for backup are Jamie Chambers and Lynda Yonge.
As well, by video conference from Sidney, Nebraska, we have from Cabela's Canada, Mr. John Tramburg, vice-president; and from Winnipeg, Darin Brecht, director of finance and e-commerce.
We're going to proceed in that order. We have some advance notice that we may need to conclude here by around 10:15 if the information is correct, so we'll keep that in mind as we're proceeding through questions and answers.
Mr. Walz, if you want to proceed with the 10-minute opening statement, we'll then go to Mr. Tramburg and Mr. Brecht in that order. Then following that we will go to committee members for questions.
Mr. Walz, go ahead, please, for 10 minutes.
