Good afternoon, gentlemen.
We're in our second hour. From the Coast Forest Products Association, we have Mr. Rick Jeffery, president and CEO.
Thank you, sir. I know that this is a second attendance for you. We're grateful that you were able to fit us in a second time.
We also have Mr. Eric Karsh, principal, structural engineering, from Equilibrium Consulting Inc.
Gentlemen, the process for today is that each of you will be given up to 10 minutes to make a presentation. Following that, you will be asked questions by members around this table. You can deliver your remarks in French and/or English. You can anticipate that you'll be asked questions in French. I believe you have devices for translation, should you need them.
On that note, I will open the floor. Perhaps you can start us off, Mr. Jeffery, since you were kind enough to come back a second time.
