Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to our witnesses for coming.
One thing we realized that comes out of this is the complexity involved around procurement, particularly procurement through our trade agreements, not only because we have one but we have multitudes of them. They can't just be a template.
I'm not sure who's going to answer this. How does the federal government know and ensure that the procurements that go out comply with all our trade agreements? There has to be a compliance factor with it. There's a procurement part.
Also, I have six first nations in my riding, and land claims will impact the compliance.
I'm wondering if somebody can help me with those two aspects.
