Thank you very much, Mr. Mandryk.
We'll turn to Mr. Aylward, the national president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada.
I would say before you start, Chris, that we do want to recognize the hard work, long hours and different work situations that the public service has followed to assist the government and Canadians in dealing with the COVID pandemic. I want you to know, on behalf of the committee, that we really appreciate the efforts that have been made there.
The floor is yours.
