Good afternoon, everybody. Thank you for being with us this afternoon.
We have two witnesses. By video conference we have Liza Mack, from the Aleut International Association. With us in the room we have Chief Bill Erasmus, from the Arctic Athabaskan Council.
Thank you both for joining us today.
Chief, I know you travelled a long way. We're very grateful for that.
Each of you will be given 10 minutes to make a presentation, and then we are going to open the table to questions for about an hour. We have time for two full rounds today, so everybody will get lots of opportunity.
I know from our discussions earlier that Mr. Cannings is quite excited about that.
Ms. Mack, I was speaking with Chief Erasmus before you came on the line, and he kindly offered to let you go first, so the floor is yours.
