Hopefully you can hear me now.
I thank all the witnesses for coming forward today. We certainly hope that your families are safe and healthy.
My first questions are for Ms. Drolet.
Ms. Drolet, thank you very much for coming forward today. You've raised real concerns about the impacts on migrant workers and undocumented workers.
Jenny Kwan, the parliamentarian, has written to the Minister of Immigration. Daniel Blaikie, another NDP parliamentarian, has written to the Minister of Employment. I've written to the Minister of Finance on this issue. There are very easy fixes, like providing temporary SINs, or extending SINs so they don't expire, and renewing work permits. These solutions are common sense, so I'm a little flabbergasted with why the government hasn't taken action.
Ms. Drolet, could you please tell us about how catastrophic the impact is on these workers themselves, as you've identified? Are front-line workers often working in long-term care homes? How catastrophic is the impact on providing health care and other supports to seniors and children, given the fact that the government has not yet taken any actions to actually ensure that migrant workers and undocumented workers are provided for through the CERB or other means?
