Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to all of our witnesses for being here.
Thank you to Mr. Peets and to Mr. Laporte for two excellent presentations. I think you've really helped to kick off our study very effectively. These presentations have underscored not only how interesting this subject area is but how important it is to the Canadian economy. This committee has a real opportunity to help shape the policy process with the objective of strengthening our IP regime in this country. Thank you for getting us started so well.
Actually, I had a hard time narrowing down the questions I want to ask.
Mr. Peets, I'll start with a few questions for you.
You talked about stakeholders within the IP landscape. At a high level, could you explain and describe who those stakeholders are?
