Welcome, witnesses, to our international trade committee. As you know, we are doing a study on future trade between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. We've been speaking with the stakeholders, both with Canadians and of course with our counterparts in the other countries. We've travelled quite extensively to the United States already. We tried to get to Mexico, but we had problems with the earthquake.
That said, we have three groups. We have Mr. Van Harten, who is appearing as an individual, and we also have Oxfam and the United Parcel Service of America.
We would appreciate it if you could keep your comments to under five minutes so that we can have a good dialogue with the MPs.
Without further ado, Mr. Van Harten, we'll start with you, if you're good to go.
