Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I will ask only one question, and then I will yield the floor to Mr. Rankin.
As we know, many homes have never been tested for radon, although a number of them are at risk. Could it be appropriate for CMHC, when processing a file for a home purchase, to require that the new buyer test for radon? That way someone buying a new home would know whether it contains radon or not and whether they have to make improvements to remedy the problem.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My first questions are about cancer screening. As Mr. Wheatley-Price said, when cancer is diagnosed, it is often no longer treatable. It is actually already difficult to treat or untreatable. So only the symptoms are treated.
I have a question about screening programs. At what age and in what situations are screening tests recommended? Of course, those tests are recommended to smokers, but would it be a good idea to recommend them to welders and people who work in a more at-risk environment? Who should be the focus of the screening program? In an ideal world, of course, at what age would it be preferable to begin with those tests to make sure we identify as many people with lung cancer as possible?

If a patient who underwent a CT scan for a specific problem had a reasonable risk of lung cancer, would they be advised to check their lungs at the same time?
People undergo CT scans for various reasons. Since they are already at the hospital, could it be a good idea to scan their lungs if they have a reasonable risk of cancer?

Thank you very much.
My questions are for Mr. Beaulieu.
In your presentation, you talked about stories for children that deal with mental illness and that have been translated. I think you have translated four so far. Could you tell me what impact talking to children about mental illness has on society? In your view, are there enough tools right now that parents and teachers can use to talk about mental illness to children?

You often feature people dealing with mental health issues, but who have nonetheless been able to cope with them and have adapted well.
What impact does this have on individuals with mental illnesses?

Do you feel that the interventions sometimes focus too much on the cure—the medication—and sort of overlook the process of support, of adapting a lifestyle to a health status?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My questions are for Ms. Migneault. I'd just like to know her take on my logic.
In a case like your husband's, which I've seen before, it's clear to me that anyone who comes to your home to replace you has to be a qualified professional; that person has to know how to deal with individuals living with problems like your husband's.
In terms of building trust, it seems obvious to me that the person should meet with you, both you and your husband, repeatedly, several times a week. It would start gradually, with 15-minute increments, increasing to 20 minutes, 30 minutes and so forth. It would take many hours of working together before you would be able to leave the house for a few hours, or perhaps even an entire day, to visit family.
When you divide $7,238 by the hourly wage of a private nurse, it doesn't take long before you run out of hours. Do you think that's a problem and that it can't be adapted in some situations?
I did a quick calculation, and if you need someone 24 hours a day, the amount is equivalent to 6 days of private nursing care a year.

Mr. Thibeau, I'd like to know what veterans' accommodations are like. How do they manage to find housing?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My first question is very simple, and it is this.
Is there an annual indexing formula geared to the cost of living for the various benefit amounts?
