Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to this meeting of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
It's a great pleasure to welcome our Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould, along with so many people from different departments that I'm not sure I can introduce everybody. I want to thank all of these people from all of the different departments and agencies who are here with us to provide backup and support to the minister and to the committee.
Very much appreciated. It is not always possible for us to thank everyone who works for the department and agencies. On behalf of all committee members, I would like to thank you for your conscientious work.
That being said, we are going to move straight to the testimony of the minister. Then we'll move to questions.
Minister, the floor is yours. Thank you for being here.
