Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My question is for you, Mr. Aylward. From everything you've said, I gather that you think Canada's public service would have been able to administer the program. At least, that's your view.
To your knowledge, was anyone asked to provide an opinion on that before the contract was awarded to WE Charity? Were you involved in discussions with members of the Prime Minister's office or cabinet to ascertain whether you were capable of administering the program?
