Good afternoon, everybody, and thank you for your confidence in that election.
We have a couple of items that we can move on to. We'll move to the election of vice-chairs, but before we do that, there are a number of new members on the committee.
On the Conservative side, Joël, it's great to have you back. The honourable Mike Lake, thank you for joining the committee. It's great to have you here. Mark Warawa, it's good to see you, a neighbour from my neck of the woods, so I'm looking forward to working with you on the committee.
I understand that Wayne Stetski is going to be our new representative from the New Democrats, so welcome. You've sat in on a number of studies with us, so it's great to have you as our ongoing member of the committee.
On the Liberal side, we are continuing with three of our former members: Mike Bossio, Will Amos, and Darren Fisher. As well, I welcome Joe Peschisolido and Julie Dzerowicz.
We have a new parliamentary secretary since we were last here. Welcome, Sean Fraser.
It's great to have everybody here at the environment committee.
Are the members willing to entertain the election of our vice-chairs at this time?
Okay, from the Conservative side—
