I would like to call the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights to order. Our agenda should be before all members here.
Pursuant to the order of reference of Tuesday, October 16, 2007, Bill C-428, an act to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act on methamphetamine, is still under review, under debate. It's a private member's bill, of course.
Mr. Chris Warkentin, I believe you will be making an opening statement.
I know, committee members, there was a desire for more information, specifically from the police. Representing the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, we have Michel Aubin, acting director general, drugs and organized crime, and Mr. Culver. Welcome to the committee. And from the Department of Justice we have Greg Yost, counsel, criminal law policy section. Welcome.
Mr. Warkentin, the floor is yours.
