Thank you very much, Mr. Chair, and through you to our witnesses, thank you for attending today.
I'd like to continue on with the questioning of my friend across the table.
Mr. Forster, if I understood correctly, metadata...when Canadians are listening to this information, of course they read the headlines and they get all upset that maybe there is some personal information that the government's collected on Canadians. I think you rightly identified that Canadians are not targeted, and that the purpose of collection of this data is to, as you put it, understand and analyze so that you can—from that sea of billions of communication methods and addresses that messages are going to, and pieced out to different entities throughout the world—more appropriately and properly identify those foreign information exchanges, shall we call them, that may be targeted against a Canadian target. Would I be correct in what I've just said?
