Thank you, Mr. Chair.
It is my turn to say hello to the witnesses who are here with us this afternoon.
Mr. Therrien, I would like to hear about the sharing of information with the United States. You said that your Beyond the Border action plan includes various recommendations, although you still have concerns, primarily as to the data retention period. For my part, I am more interested in the other part, that is, the risk that data collected at the border could then be used for other purposes.
First of all, I would like to know what kind of purposes you had in mind when you wrote that. Secondly, I would like to know how we can prevent information from being used for other purposes.
