I'm Agnes Samler, president of Defence for Children International--Canada. My colleague Les Horne is the volunteer executive director. We've both worked extensively with young offenders in Ontario and across the country and we both have been child advocates in Ontario; in fact, Les was the first child advocate in North America. Defence for Children has sections all over the world, and its purpose is to promote the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and to work towards its full implementation.
I'll pass over to Les.
