Ladies and gentlemen, I call this meeting of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights to order.
We are delighted to have you all here today. I would just like to acknowledge that Mr. Schmale is stepping in for Mr. Falk, Mr. Mulcair for Mr. Rankin, and Ms. Vandenbeld for Mr. Hussen.
It's a real pleasure to have you all on our committee. Welcome.
I look forward to your questions later.
It also gives me great pleasure to welcome the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, who is now testifying before this committee for I believe the fourth time.
As always, Madam Minister, it's an incredible pleasure to have you. We'll be talking today about the process for appointing justices to the Supreme Court of Canada.
Madam Minister, the floor is yours.
