Good afternoon, everyone. I call this meeting to order.
This is meeting number 25 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Natural Resources. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), the committee is continuing its study of creating a fair and equitable Canadian energy transformation. Today is our eighth meeting with witnesses for this study.
For the first panel, we have the ministers until six o'clock. We do have departmental officials too. I'll check once we get into the questions with the ministers, but the first thing I'm going to start with, if we'd like to get right into questions, is that I'll ask if there's unanimous consent to have the ministers' opening statements read into the record and we'll move right to questions.
Are there any concerns with that? Is everybody good with that?
