Colleagues, we are here pursuant to the order of reference of Tuesday, October 3, 2017, on Bill C-47, an act to amend the Export and Import Permits Act and the Criminal Code.
We have three witnesses this morning. We will allow them to make short presentations and then get into the usual Qs and As.
The witnesses are the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries, the Control Arms Secretariat, and the Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East.
From New York, we have Anna Macdonald, the director of the Control Arms Secretariat.
I'm going to turn the floor over to you for your presentation.
