I'll come back if asked, for sure, any time.

Yes. I just want to make it clear that we'll do one witness and two full rounds. If we have to, we can suspend for a few minutes while the other witnesses do their sound check, and then we can start the second round of witnesses as soon as possible.
I appreciate Mr. Komal's expertise, but he has already been a witness. I was hoping the plan would be that we'd go with the one witness, do the two full rounds, and if the opportunity is there, maybe start the second round a bit sooner, as soon as possible.
That would be my suggestion, if that's okay.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you very much to the poultry producers and the Dairy Farmers of Canada for being here.
First I want to go on record that the Conservative Party believes it is not the farmer's job to make sure that people don't come on their property. They're doing a great job with the signage and ensuring that people know where property lines are. Sometimes activists don't listen to signs. I don't think it's the farmers' fault when people trespass on their property. I just want to make sure that people realize the Conservatives stand with those farmers.
I'm going to be very clear. I think some of my colleagues have danced around this, asking the same question and hoping they get a different answer.
I'll ask the dairy farmers first and then the poultry farmers: Do you believe that this bill will help alleviate some of the fears and stresses that are put on farmers because of these activist activities?

Go ahead, Mr. Leblanc.

We very much appreciate the work you all do.
On the second question, one comment was that if this isn't a national framework, some provinces that don't have the same laws in place might be targeted by activists. I would like you to build on that comment. I think it's very salient right now, to the point that the federal government should show leadership on this file and have a national bill put in place.
I just want to hear comments. If this isn't done nationally, will some provinces be targeted that don't have the same laws?

Thank you very much.
Finally, I have one quick comment to make. A previous witness said there are many third party animal welfare auditors, like the SPCA and others, specifically industry auditors, that come on farms safely and check on animal welfare.
There is no hidden, behind the scenes production going on, on dairy farms or producer farms. There are already many audits being done by third parties to ensure animal safety.
Could you guys confirm that?
We heard it from a witness just before you guys came on. I want to make sure it is on the record that there are already third party auditors ensuring animal safety on farms across the country.

I call this meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting number 37 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates. The committee is meeting today from 4:31 p.m. to 5:31 p.m. to hear from witnesses as part of its study of the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind all participants in this meeting that taking screenshots or taking photos of your screen is not permitted.
To ensure an orderly meeting, I would like to outline a few rules to follow.
Interpretation in this video conference will work very much like in a regular committee meeting. You have the choice at the bottom of your screen of “floor”, “English” or “French”. Before speaking, please wait until I recognize you by name. When you are ready to speak, you can click on the microphone icon to activate your mike. When you are not speaking, your mike should be on mute.
To raise a point of order during the meeting, committee members should ensure that their microphone is unmuted and say “point of order” to get the chair’s attention.
The clerk and the analysts are participating in the meeting virtually today. If you need to speak with them during the meeting, please email them through the committee email address. The clerk can also be reached on his mobile phone.
For those who are participating in the committee room, please note that masks are required for all staff at all times. MPs may remove their masks only when they are seated.
At this point, we're asking for five minutes of opening statements.
I will now invite Mr. Dyck to make a five minute presentation.

Ms. Vignola, you're not able to get interpretation. Is that correct?

Thank you, Mr. Clerk.
Thank you for the point of order, Mr. Drouin.
I think, in light of how late it is and just the challenges we have—it is a bit of a challenging meeting.... As the clerk has indicated, people could join in with ParlVU, so I think we will continue.
Thank you.
With that, we will now go to our second speaker—I apologize if I pronounce your name incorrectly—Mr. Guitor.

Thank you, Mr. Guitor.
We will now start with questions.
Mr. McCauley, you have six minutes.
