Good morning, Ms. Stoddart, Ms. Bernier and Ms. Denham. Thank you for being here this morning.
I want to start by congratulating you and your team, Ms. Stoddart. I am very pleased with the job you have done. On Saturday, I was reading the paper and learned that you were leading the way in terms of the social networking site Google Buzz, as you did with Facebook. Given the tools at your disposal, the manner in which you work, as well as your relationships with privacy commissioners around the world, whether in New Zealand, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland or Germany, I would say you are doing a fine job and have an outstanding team.
My question has to do with your priority issues this year. You identified four, which you mentioned earlier: information technologies, national security, the integrity and protection of people's identity and genetic technologies. Clearly, given the vast number of areas in your field of expertise—and given all the new technologies—you chose four out of a slew of others, I would imagine.
What criteria did you base your choices on?
