Mr. Pawson, my office in Saint John, New Brunswick, does a lot of work with the two shelters here. We work with Jayme Hall at Outflow and with Mary Saulnier-Taylor at Coverdale.
I certainly remember getting home from Ottawa when the pandemic was becoming more and more serious in all ridings across the country. We were extremely concerned about the men and women at shelters. We serve breakfast there pretty much every weekend and have a great relationship with them. Our minds and hearts went out to the men in the shelters.
Obviously, I was thrilled that we came out with the Reaching Home homelessness strategy, which has provided more money to the shelters through the Human Development Council, with Randy Hatfield and his wonderful group. Given what has happened with COVID-19, what are the most significant risks that people experiencing homelessness have faced? What was their biggest risk?

Let me just jump in. Do you feel we need to move away from a congregate model? I was lucky enough to be in HUMA last session. We went across the country looking at shelters, and almost every one of them has that style.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
The cruel impact of systemic racism is not only felt through law enforcement; research, data and lived experiences have made it unequivocal. Racial discrimination immensely impacts the health of racialized and indigenous peoples. In some cases, it's an issue of life or death. Morever, the intersection of gender and racism amplifies the consequences—for instance, the documented practice of forced sterilization of indigenous women; undiagnosed endometriosis, where symptoms were dismissed or ignored for years far more often for women of colour; and the persistence of transphobia in how the hospitals are caring for our 2SLGBTQ+ community.
The government made a commitment last fall to work to support studies that take diversity, race and gender factors into account to improve women's health care.
My question is for the Minister of Health. When will we see action on this commitment in an effort to eliminate racism and systemic barriers in the health care system?

Mr. Chair, Fredericton is a riding crossed by a river. On an official map, I will read that its name is the Saint John, but for the Wolastoqiyik people, it's name is Wolastoq, meaning the beautiful and bountiful river. It is indeed beautiful.
For centuries, the river has been a source of friendship, trade and identity. We are witnessing here and around the world a movement to reclaim spaces. Colonial stories have been imposed on mountains, statues, streets and rivers across Canada in an effort to erase and rewrite.
If we want a culture to not only survive but thrive, it must be an integral part of our environment. Indigenous names of spaces are a powerful way to inscribe the landscape with meaning and show reverence.
My question is to the heritage minister. By working with first nation communities and respecting their jurisdiction and priorities, will his government lead initiatives to create public policies in recognition of indigenous place names?

Mr. Chair, there are approximately six million people living with a disability in Canada. Before the pandemic, they were already struggling with inclusion, accessibility and poverty, and those issues have only been exacerbated.
This government prides itself on growing the middle class, but we must not forget that the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.
Can the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion share exactly how the government plans to support people living with a disability in the following months?

Will there be a new bill tabled in the near future that people can count on?

For my last remaining time, I'd just like to wish everyone a happy Father's Day. To my father Bob, to my husband Chris, and my stepfather Ronnie, thank you for all that you do.
Happy Fathers' Day!

Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to the 18th meeting of the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food.
We will spend the first hour of the meeting on our business risk management program study, and we'll spend the second hour in camera considering the draft letter prepared by the committee's analysts.
I would like to outline a few rules to follow. Most of you have heard them before, but I think it's important to repeat them.
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. When you intervene, please make sure that your language channel is set to the language that you intend to speak, not to the floor channel. This is very important. It will reduce the number of times we need to stop because the interpretation is inaudible for our participants. It will also maximize the amount of time we spend exchanging with each other.
I believe that all of our witnesses understand that. If you could just give me a good nod that you know how it works.... Thank you.
Also, before speaking, please wait until I recognize you by name. When you're ready to speak, you can click on the microphone icon to activate your mike. That's at the bottom left-hand side of your screen.
Make sure that your microphone is off when you are not talking.
We are now ready to begin.
I want to welcome today's witnesses.
We are hearing from Léopold Bourgeois, from the Agricultural Alliance of New Brunswick. He is the president of the New Brunswick Agricultural Insurance Commission.
We also have Peter Slade appearing as an individual.
He is an assistant professor and the Canadian Canola Growers chair in agricultural policy at the University of Saskatchewan.
We also have Ms. Erin Gowriluk, executive director of Grain Growers of Canada, and Andre Harpe, director.
With that, we will start with opening statements of up to seven minutes each.
Mr. Bourgeois, you have seven minutes to make your presentation.

Thank you for your testimony, Mr. Bourgeois. We will put some questions to you later.
Now we'll go to Mr. Peter Slade, Canadian Canola Growers chair.
Go ahead for up to seven minutes, please.
For some reason we're not hearing any sound. Try again, Mr. Slade.
Does anybody hear anything?
We'll get a technician to work with you, Mr. Slade.
We'll go to the Grain Growers of Canada, Mr. Harpe or Ms. Gowriluk, for up to seven minutes.
Go ahead.

Is that okay with the interpreters?
A voice: This is Émilie, the interpreter. The issue is that there's a lot of echo when you don't wear the headset. The sound is muffled and seems distant. That's why we usually really prefer that you wear a headset.

Perhaps I could suspend.
We'll give them a few minutes to see if they can solve the problem. We'll suspend for now.
