Here we go. Welcome, everyone, to meeting 45 of the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates. This is a televised meeting.
Under the orders of the day today, we are going to start with Standing Order 108(3)(c)(vii), the study of the process for considering the estimates and supply.
I want to welcome back our guests. We had to chase them away at the last meeting because of votes, unfortunately, but I hear we won't have that interruption today.
From the Treasury Board, we have Bill Matthews, Sally Thornton, and Kenneth Wheat. From the Department of Finance, we have Douglas Nevison.
We'll start with the Treasury Board presentation, if that's okay. Then we'll go to Finance, and then to questions.
The floor is yours, Bill.
