I want to thank the interpreters and apologize that I wasn't ready to go at the beginning.
Thank you to all the witnesses who have joined us today.
I have a couple of questions for a dear friend of mine. I'd like to ask Herb some questions to start.
Herb, first of all, it's nice to see you on the call.
Can you talk a bit more about the Metis Settlements' unique structure and how it has impacted your ability to receive support?
