Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thanks to all our witnesses, and particular thanks to Mr. McGowan for coming in, because I know it was 6:30 Alberta time when you actually came to provide testimony to us. We appreciate you being here and we appreciate the clarity of what you've been telling us.
I know, because I'm often in Alberta, that the issue of temporary foreign workers is increasingly one Albertans are concerned about. These workers are not subject to the same rights that Canadians are. They're not allowed to bring their families or establish that kind of contribution to Canada they would like to make. They're brought in and then they're shipped right out, kind of like the rip it and ship it you're talking about for raw resources.
Can you give us an indication as to what extent it is a growing problem? Do you have numbers? The government seems reluctant to release the real numbers of temporary foreign workers working in the oil and gas industry in Alberta.
