Thank you both for your testimony and for the important work that you're doing.
I'll start with you, Lieutenant Colonel Lipana. Your story is so important. Thank you for coming to Canada and sharing that story with us, and for your service as an ally. I really hope you feel like you're at home, because we're all brothers and sisters, and you really connected us there. So thank you.
In terms of best practices in Canada, maybe you could speak about what we do well, and where you see some gaps, and maybe you could speak about where you're doing well. It's my understanding, in terms of return to work, that a lot of your caseworkers, 30% I think, are former military service members.
Could you talk about the importance of that familiarity? With regard to Mark's story, I think if he were dealing with people who had served, maybe there would be that understanding, that important piece. Could you speak to the return to work, and case managers in that sense?
