Good afternoon, everyone. I now call to order the 79th meeting of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), today, we will be considering the nomination of the Honourable Sheilah L. Martin to the Supreme Court of Canada.
It's a great pleasure to have as our witnesses today the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, our Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.
Also, as the chairman of the Independent Advisory Board for Supreme Court of Canada Judicial Appointments, we have the Right Honourable Kim Campbell.
Welcome to our committee. It's a great pleasure to have you with us.
As all of us in this room know, the government, the advisory board, and certainly the committee and Canadians take very seriously the appointment of a judge to the Supreme Court, and it's a great pleasure to be part of this process. We thank you for being here before us.
Ladies, the floor is yours.
