Okay.
Is this the only study that has picked out the difference between male and female trends in high radon regions over time?

In British Columbia, what kind of protection do you have when injuries happen?
Madam Molnar, can you hear me?

I was speaking about injuries and the fact that in Quebec this is partly protected by the provincial government. Is that the case in British Columbia or not at all?

British Columbia and Alberta chose another system. Will it be possible to have an array of clean technologies with that approach?

Okay.
In terms of benefits, when we were out in Vancouver, it looked like the TPP was more important to the west coast than the CETA. When we were in Halifax, it looked like the CETA was more important than the TPP. Is that your feeling as well in terms of your membership?

Thank you, Madame Chair.
Welcome to you all and thank you for being here. I'm going to begin with Ms. Cairns.
Ms. Cairns, I'm going to look for short answers. I'm trying to establish numbers. I'm wondering how many publicly funded outpatient clinics there are in B.C.

I see also that they have removed the moratorium on the farms in British Columbia. How do you see that affecting? Did you answer that?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to the witnesses for coming here and appearing before us.
I guess my first question would be for you, Mr. Boon. My understanding is that when we sign free trade agreements it's normally about duties and tariffs, but you mentioned it will put your industry on equal footing with some of your competitors, more on a regulation and conformity type of basis.
Can you comment on that? Is that going to be part of the negotiations? Have you had any input regarding that? That's going to be important.

Okay, thank you.
Mr. Newman, you mentioned something about the sector not benefiting from trade just towards the end. I didn't catch that because I don't have a copy of your brief, but you said something about if you sign the TPP there will be some sectors that are not going to benefit from the TPP, and you don't want to be penalized. Is that what I understood?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to the witnesses.
First to Mr. Winter, I'm just trying to see if I should follow up on what Mr. Holder was saying or what you were saying. I mean, the problem with small businesses, in trying to grow their businesses, is not just in B.C. It's also across Canada, especially in Ontario and Quebec, where the small manufacturing sector is suffering. Whether it's the high dollar now, or the low dollar, or competition with China, I think we're all feeling that effect.
We all support.... I'm not going to speak for the Conservatives or the NDP, but we Liberals support free trade, obviously. Is there any industry that can benefit from this immediately, or is it just of general benefit to all businesses?

My next question has to do with the fact that we're out here in B.C. How much influence or how much effect will trade with Europe have on businesses out here in B.C.? Just to get out to the Atlantic provinces requires a six- or seven-hour plane ride.

Thank you. I'd like to get a question in to Mr. Tam.
Mr. Tam, in terms of your industry, Canada is beginning to feel the effect of a labour shortage, a skilled labour shortage. Is there any threat that some of the European countries will be exporting more labour than we will, in the technology sector in particular?

Okay, thank you.
Mr. Jeffery, we had a witness this morning who stated that with CETA most of the benefits are going to be to multinationals, but in turn, if you look at some of the multinationals that had a harder time with the North American Free Trade Agreement, or just with the Free Trade Agreement with the United States, they were from the forestry sector in particular, and the automobile sector.
Do you have a comment on that?

Okay. I wasn't sure in what fashion you would be able to innovate. You're stuck in a sector where you're just selling milk in your province. How far can you go with your product?

Thank you very much.
First, I want to thank the committee again for hearing from the families. I think it really changed a lot. It really is important to hear from them. A couple of the families that we had heard before were unable to come in December. Their story is one of this not being taken seriously, the investigation not being taken seriously, or the disappearance of young women being labelled as inevitable, and they didn't see a search happening, didn't see anybody really looking. I think one of the stepdad's we heard from in October said that they didn't even talk to him, so who did they talk to. I think there was a feeling of breakdown in trust.
What you've described here in terms of your recommendations.... We don't have very much time left in this committee, so we really would love you to tell us what you want to see in our report.
Police accountability obviously you'd like in the report, but that's sort of after the fact.
Obviously, the relationship is broken in these places. What would be your recommendation to repair the relationship? What kinds of things would communities have to do to build back a trusting relationship because of what has happened?
The other piece is we've heard that people aren't out on the Highway of Tears for no reason. Maybe they're fleeing domestic abuse, but we've even heard that some young girls are out there fleeing abuse of foster care. It's not just doctor's appointments. Did you hear anything about foster care?
Also, we would like you to help us by saying what you'd like in the report, and how you would repair the relationship, because that's very much the substance of your report.
