Hello, everybody. Welcome to INAN, the indigenous and northern affairs committee.
We're on unceded Algonquin territory here in Ottawa. At a time when Canada is finally dealing with truth and reconciliation in a sincere and proactive manner, it's important for us to recognize the lands that we're on and the history we've gone through and that we are building together in a more positive Canada.
We have a couple of jobs to do before we get into the fire study.
We have a change in our vice-chair. I'll turn it over to our clerk. He will be conducting the election.
