May I just say, Mr. Chair, that I think the issue has been described as forced or compelled sterilization, so I think that's the whole premise of this. There are women coming forward. In fact, I believe there's a class action being filed by some 60 indigenous women who claim that they have gone into the hospital for various surgeries and come out having had tubal ligations and other procedures that they weren't prepared for and didn't authorize. I think that's the premise of the study.
