Thank you, Mr. Chair, and my thanks to all the witnesses for being here and for your patience, especially Mr. LeBlanc and Madame Parisio, who travelled to Ottawa to testify.
Mr. Mackie, whom I know well, is with us electronically. I'm going to present most of my questions to you, Mr. Mackie.
Ms. Parisio, I was born in Newfoundland and Labrador, but I represent the riding of Charlottetown.
Mr. LeBlanc, I'm a graduate of Fredericton High School, class of 1980.
Mr. Mackie, I'd like to ask you about Prince Edward Island's status as the only province in Canada where there is no face-to-face service for immigrants with the Government of Canada, since that service was eliminated under the previous government. Can you talk a bit about the impact on your clients of that service being eliminated back in 2012?
