Colleagues, I'll call the meeting to order again.
I want to thank the Treasury Board Secretariat for being with us today. We have a number of witnesses before us.
Mr. Purves, welcome back again, sir. It's good to see you again. I understand that you have a brief opening statement. If you could commence with that, sir, and then we'll go directly into questions.
Mr. Purves, the floor is yours.
