I'd like to welcome everybody to the defence committee.
Minister, department officials, members of the Canadian Armed Forces, thank you very much for attending today to discuss supplementary estimates (B), as in bravo. I know most of us have done this a few times now, so I will spend little time talking about the process so we can get right to the discussion.
Minister, I'm happy to give you some time to give your opening remarks, and then we'll get into questioning. The floor is yours, sir.
