Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, Minister, and everyone here at the committee today.
I want to start first with you, Minister. We will continue to ask the tough questions in the House and here at committee, but you can absolutely continue to count on our support on this side of the table. You and I have had many personal conversations, and I certainly appreciate the opportunity to connect with you.
There are tough questions, though, Minister.
Right now, we're seeing a number of sports organizations—the NBA, the NHL—that are considering stopping events that have massive crowds. There are massive gatherings around the world where we're seeing that they are cancelling those events or crowd participation.
I was hoping that you could perhaps weigh in on when it gets to the point where the government, and essentially you and your team, stop these events, if that were the case here in Canada.
