I call the meeting to order.
This is meeting number 32 of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy, and Ethics. Our order today is pursuant to Standing Order 32(5), report of the Privacy Commissioner on the application of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act for the year 2008, referred to this committee on Tuesday, October 6, 2009.
This morning our scheduled witness was to be the Privacy Commissioner. Unfortunately, she has a cold and is not able to sustain any speaking. As a consequence, she has asked, and we certainly welcome, Elizabeth Denham, the Assistant Privacy Commissioner, who is very familiar with the annual report and is in a position to also deal with any of our questions.
I welcome you, Ms. Denham. Thank you for being here, for stepping in.
I understand you have some opening remarks. Please introduce your colleagues who are with you for the benefit of the members. Please proceed.
