Thank you very much, Chair, and thank you to our witnesses for appearing.
I'll start with the Poultry and Egg Processors Council.
I think it's safe to imagine that the workplace has fundamentally changed as a result of COVID-19, especially in a processing plant, with the need for Plexiglas barriers, physical distancing, alternate shifts, personal protective equipment and so on. Those conditions in the workplace will probably be in place for some time. They may be relaxed at some point in the future, but I think any time that a pandemic rears its ugly head in the future, we will have to be ready to implement them yet again.
You represent small and large processors right across Canada. I'm wondering, given the new conditions in the workplace, what your output is going to be like when we get back to normal. You had a business model that worked with employees sometimes working very closely together. You still have the same floor-space, but now they have to work farther apart in different shifts. What's your output going to be like in a year from now? Are you going to be able to come back to the levels you once had a year or so ago?
