Minister, thank you for joining us. I know a lot of Canadians would be terrified to enter a room with this many lawyers, but I thank you for being here.
I'd like to speak to the creation of 28 new positions in superior courts, an increase of $55 million over five years, and $15.5 million ongoing. My understanding is that this is addressing delays and responding to the Jordan decision that will require a multipronged approach, including collaboration with provincial and territorial leaders.
Can you discuss whether this funding is part of a broader strategy to address those delays?
