Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I thank the witnesses taking part in this meeting. I also thank the technicians and the interpreters, whose work is essential to the committee.
I am on the traditional territory of the Algonquin, the Anishinabe and the Cree of Abitibi—Baie-James—Nunavik—Eeyou.
Mr. Cardinal, I am very happy you are here. Are you able to draw a parallel between the COVID-19 crisis and the railway crisis in recent months?
