That's not really necessary, Mr. Angus.
As the chair, I was going to welcome our witnesses to the committee, but thank you for your enthusiasm.
We appreciate the three officers of Parliament who have made themselves available on very short notice to come and discuss Bill C-520. As committee members, we have received written correspondence signed by seven agents of Parliament, and we appreciated that input as well. We have one thin hour to deal with the situation, unfortunately.
We'll welcome your opening remarks as you see fit to use them up to a maximum of perhaps 10 minutes each, or as a combined effort, as you see fit.
Mr. Mayrand, Madam Dawson, and Mr. Ferguson, welcome.
The floor is yours.
