Thank you to all of the witnesses for being here. I have many questions to ask.
Let me start off with something Dr. Fitzgibbons said. He said we have a world-class workforce and we have Canada's brain trust. I wanted to ask you about basic research. What is the climate like for basic research today in Canada? Because to me, that's the starting point, I guess. We don't know what we're going to discover until we actually find it.
Having this world-class brain trust, as you put it, to me seems incredibly important. Are we investing at a competitive level in basic research? Are we offering enough post-doctoral fellowships? How do we stack up with the rest of the world in terms of this important starting point, which is basic research?
