Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, Ms. Aung Thin and Ms. Bombardier, for being here with us this evening, at such a late hour.
Mr. Barrière, of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, said earlier that there were problems with bilingualism and respect for French, but that it varied from one branch or department to another. He wanted to separate the wheat from the chaff.
I trust, ladies, that your department will be among the top students and not the dunces in the class. We will carefully read the Commissioner of Official Languages' report for the outcome of his evaluation of the various departments.
I'd like to come back to the labelling issue. You must have expected a lot of questions about it today, since it's been in the news.
As one of the witnesses said, we're all in favour of complying with the Official Languages Act, unless there is a technical glitch, a crisis or an emergency. During the pandemic crisis, you had to deal with astronomical needs for certain products. You mentioned disinfectants and personal protective equipment, I believe.
What are you planning to do to avoid putting French aside every time there's an emergency?
