Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for coming. This is the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights, meeting number 14. It's supposed to start at 11 o'clock, and I do apologize to our witnesses for being delayed, but we had a vote in the House and we had to attend.
Pursuant to the order of reference of Monday, October 21, 2013 we're doing a statutory review of part XVII of the Criminal Code. We're doing two video conferences today, and I thank you for joining us, gentlemen. Just so you know, there will potentially be other votes that we may get called to, but my goal is to make sure that your testimony does get into the record.
From the Fédération des associations de juristes d'expression française de common law inc. we have Mr. Allan Damer; and from the same organization, Mr. Rénald Rémillard from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Gentlemen, the floor is yours. You have 10 minutes each and we'll start with you, Mr. Damer.
