I call this meeting to order.
It is now one o'clock, Ottawa time. This the 22nd meeting of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics. We are resuming the study today with regard to the questions of conflict of interest and lobbying in relation to pandemic spending.
I would like to remind members and witnesses that today's meeting will be made available through the House of Commons website and will be webcast.
This afternoon, our first witness is Sofia Marquez. Ms. Marquez is a former staff member of government and stakeholder relations with WE Charity. Thank you, Ms. Marquez, for joining us this morning. We'll turn to you for your opening statement. Then, as you know, we'll have some questions for you.
Thanks again for joining us. We'll be interested to hear what you have to say.
