Thank you so much, Madam Chair.
I'd like to thank all the officials for being with us today to answer our questions, as well as the minister, who is no longer here, but that's okay.
I would like to first let you know that I have heard from a lot of the small businesses in my riding. I have very many of them. Many of them are really happy with a lot of the supports that have been put in place. I'd like to also thank you for all the hard work you've been doing behind the scenes. I'm sure that right now is a hectic period for all of you.
These small businesses obviously are going through a lot, and yes, what we've put in place has helped them until now, but they're obviously uncertain of what the future holds, as we all are. They're wondering what other supports will be available to them once the $40,000 loan, for example, has been used up.
Are we considering giving a second loan of that amount? Are we considering other measures to put in place in order to help support these small businesses?
