Good morning. Many thanks for being here. This is your second meeting with the committee. It is always an honour to have you here.
I also want to thank you for holding all these consultations during the year. I was very gratified to have you come to my riding, with the parliamentary secretary and Mr. Lussier, to discuss the issues facing minority communities and the vitality of those communities. This is an important issue for Canada and it is important to me as well.
In the numerous meetings you have had, what have you heard about the issues facing our minority communities and the vitality of those communities? How can the action plan you foresee support our francophone communities and ensure their survival?
