Thank you, Madam Chair.
I was going to start with Laura Schemitsch. Hopefully, I pronounced that right. I have the same problem.
You described in your opening statement an almost heroic attempt by the Government of Canada's IRCC department to clear the 2.6 million backlog. This is a department that has 30% more staff than it did in 2016. It has more than doubled its budget, and the backlog has continued to grow.
In your opening statement, you said that what was going on is jeopardizing Canada's immigration system. How do we square these two statements: your description and the fact the system is being jeopardized? What did you mean?
