I call the meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting number 32 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance. Pursuant to the committee's motion adopted on Friday, February 5, 2021, the committee is meeting to study all aspects of COVID-19 spending and programs.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of January 25, and therefore members are attending in person in the room and remotely using the Zoom application. Proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website.
Just so that witnesses are aware—members certainly are already aware—the webcast will always show the person speaking rather than the entirety of the committee.
I would remind folks to try to keep their mike off when they're not speaking.
Witnesses, if you want to add a comment to somebody's question, even if it's directed elsewhere, just raise your hand and I'll try to catch you. If I miss you, you'll have to put your mike on and yell.
With that, we do have a couple of orders of business. I'll split them and do one with this panel and one with the other before we go to witnesses.
The order of business that we must deal with is the budget for the Bill C-14 hearings we already completed. The request for the project budget, just to name it, is Bill C-14, an act to implement certain provisions of the economic statement tabled in Parliament on November 30, 2020 and other measures, and the amount requested is $5,025.
Does somebody want to move that motion?

Lib. (PE)
It is moved by Mr. Ste-Marie and seconded by Ms. Dzerowicz.
Is there any discussion on that?
(Motion agreed to)
The Chair: Great. If only all these things could be so simple.
Welcome to the witnesses appearing before us virtually today. We appreciate your coming in this new set-up.
We'll start with Mr. Paquet from the Alliance de l'industrie touristique du Québec. If witnesses could try to hold their remarks to about five minutes, it would leave more time for questions.
Mr. Paquet, welcome back. The floor is yours.

Thank you very much, Mr. Paquet.
We will turn now to Victoria Morton, who is appearing as an individual.
Victoria, I'm not sure if you have an opening statement or not. The floor is yours.

I haven't seen it either. I expect it's in one language and not translated.
Alexandre, do you want to comment on that, please?

Lib. (PE)
Okay.
It's not too long, I gather. We'll get Ms. Morton to read it into the record when we finish the rest of the witness list.
Are you okay with that, Ms. Morton? Thank you.
We'll turn now to Northwest Territories Tourism, with Ms. Demarcke, CEO.

Before I turn to the last witness, I want to give you a heads-up on the question list. First up will be Mrs. Jansen, followed by Mr. McLeod, Mr. Ste-Marie and Mr. Johns.
We will turn to Transparency International Canada, with Mr. Cohen, executive director.
The floor is yours, Mr. Cohen.
