Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Ms. Ross, at the outset of your remarks you decried the lack of leadership on this issue and you concluded with four specific recommendations. If I have them right, you recommended increased funding for research and data collection, a way for sharing best practices among law enforcement and those in the system, diagnostic centres, and case managers.
I find it interesting that none of the recommendations that you presented to us involved legislative change. They all involve the allocation of resources.
Ms. Elspeth Ross: Well, that's—
Mr. Sean Casey: Just let me finish this.
I don't fault you for that. I guess my point is that all too often what we see from government is an amendment to the Criminal Code to cure all ills, as opposed to fiscal and other solutions.
Those are the recommendations you've put forward. Can you describe for me the present state of affairs with respect to each of them? You've said that they need to be built upon. Can you give us some anecdotes or some sense of where R and D, where best practice sharing, where diagnostic centres, where case manager positions are at the present time?
