Thank you, Chair.
We've heard that it's sometimes difficult for women to approach police to lodge a complaint or to register that an incident has occurred. I'm wondering if there are alternatives to that. It comes to mind that information can be sworn to a justice of the peace, I believe, to initiate a criminal action. Is that correct?

People could approach a justice of the peace and say, “This has been going on and I'd like to lodge a complaint.” That would be passed on to the appropriate police of jurisdiction.

I respect that. However, I guess I was looking for an alternative other than going through police services and whether a justice of the peace could serve that function.

That's okay. It can be initiated outside of the police forces. Is that right?

Okay.
My other question, if I have time, is about warrants. Medical records typically are privileged. In order to access them, you'd probably need specific incidents to get a warrant about. If you had a complainant who was a victim, you could presumably get a warrant for that person's medical records much more easily to follow up on that specific complaint.

Okay. Great.
Those were my questions.

Okay.
It seems to me, from what we've heard in the various panels, that one of the fundamental problems, among a number of fundamental problems, is that victims are not reporting. If they don't report to the police, then the police will never investigate. If they don't report to the hospital or the college of surgeons, those bodies will never investigate.
Dr. Richardson, you mentioned that all forced and coerced sterilization allegations in Canada must be thoroughly and impartially investigated, but if they're not made, how can we do that? How can we go forward and make it possible or easy for these incidents to be properly reported?

Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to the presenters.
Before we reached this deal, people in British Columbia were not very optimistic in dealing with President Trump, with all the tariffs we had. Once this agreement was reached, you have expressed your opinion but when I'm out in the community on the doorsteps, whether it's the small and medium-sized manufacturers or the labour groups, the workers, everyone has said to me, “Sukh Dhaliwal, we want you to tell Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland the great work they have done to get this deal done.”
Do you hear the same on the ground, or a different opinion out there?

How about the rules of origin and labour provisions? Would they slow down the movement of jobs to Mexico or the other way around?

It's 30 seconds more with the time he wasted.
