Thank you, Chair.
Thank you to the witnesses for being here today.
I was at an event on the weekend in London, back in the riding. It was a Christmas choir event put on by the Pride Men's Chorus in London, Ontario, and there was a great deal of excitement about what's moving along here.
I also want to commend my colleague across the way, who I don't know terribly well, but I do know that he has worked on these issues for most of his life.
Thank you very much, Randall, for what you've done.
My first question has been touched on already in terms of international experiences. Australia is mentioned, as are New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Germany. These initiatives have really taken off in these countries very recently as well, with all of them in 2017, if I'm not mistaken. To the extent that we are now moving along with Bill C-66, can you comment on how we have looked at those experiences in terms of legislation and have sought to build into this approach best practices and lessons learned from their very early approach?
