Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you to the witnesses for appearing today.
I'd like to focus my questions on the Parole Board, specifically with regard to the elder-assisted hearings. I'm interested in finding out more about them. As well, 16% were for indigenous women offenders.... When I think of 16%, it's not a great number. I'd like to know if there's a way we can increase that. If it's an effective hearing process, which I assume it is, since you've put it in your report, how do we get that number up over 16% if we have a disproportionate number of indigenous women in prison?
