We'll officially call the meeting to order.
Welcome, all, to meeting number 42 and the first panel of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance today. We are meeting on government spending, the WE Charity and the Canada student service grant. Today's meeting is taking place by video conference, and the proceedings will be made available by the House of Commons website.
We're fortunate to have with us the Clerk of the Privy Council and Secretary to the Cabinet in this first hour, Mr. Shugart.
Welcome, sir. I don't believe you have an opening statement. If you do, that's fine. If you don't, we will go to questions.
I have a heads-up for questions by members. The lineup for the first six-minute round will be Mr. Poilievre, Mr. Fragiskatos, Mr. Fortin and Mr. Julian.
Mr. Shugart, the floor is yours.
