Welcome, everyone. Hopefully everyone had a chance to get a little rest. We're back. Welcome to meeting number 21 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food.
We will spend the first hour of the meeting on our business risk management program study, and the second hour in camera to provide drafting instructions to the analysts for the study's report.
For the meeting to go smoothly, I'd like to outline a few rules to follow.
Interpretation in this video conference will work very much like it does at 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 your language channel is set at the language you intend to speak, not the floor. This is very important. It will reduce the number of times we need to stop because the interpretation is inaudible to our our participants. It will maximize the amount of time we can spend on exchanges with each other.
Especially to our witnesses, could you let us know with a nod that you understand this and you can find the function on your screen? I see some heads nod. Monsieur Daigle, everything's good. Okay, we'll proceed.
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.
Make sure that your microphone is turned off when you aren't speaking.
We're now ready to begin.
I want to welcome the witnesses who are participating in today's meeting.
For our first hour we have, from the Beef Farmers of Ontario, Rob Lipsett, president, and Richard Horne, executive director. From the Canadian Young Farmers' Forum we have Paul Glenn, the past chair, and Julie Bissonnette, regional representative, Ontario-Quebec. From the National Cattle Feeders' Association we have Janice Tranberg, president and chief executive officer, and Michel Daigle, chair of the board of directors. Welcome to all of you.
We will start with your opening statements for up to seven minutes between both of you.
Beef Farmers of Ontario, go ahead.

That's about it, so thank you.
That's about all the time we have for this round.
I want to thank all of our witnesses who took the time to be with us today: from the Beef Farmers of Ontario, Mr. Lipsett and Mr. Horne; from the Canadian Young Farmers' Forum, Mr. Glenn and Madame Bissonnette; and from the National Cattle Feeders' Association, Janice Tranberg and Michel Daigle.
I'm sure it will help us when we do our report.
We will have to break for about 15 minutes, but as we move in camera, I'll remind the members and their staff that they have to log off this meeting and then use the credential provided in the separate email that was sent earlier today to log back in. I remind you that it may take up to 15 minutes to set up the new virtual meeting space, so to all the members, come back in 15 minutes at the maximum. You can come before, but it could take up to that time before we are ready to go.
I'll suspend the meeting, and we'll see you in 15 minutes. Thank you.

Thank you very much, Madam Chair. I'll just ask a few questions since we have a bit of extra time.
I think, first and foremost, we would all recognize or agree that Canadians have taken the public health warnings very seriously when it comes to dealing with COVID-19. We certainly have seen a huge economic impact as a result of COVID-19 and the loss of life has been substantive in this country, but when we look at the overall measures that Canada has taken, we have a lot to be proud of.
I'm hearing a lot of talk about the investments that we could possibly be making with respect to developing an app. If we look at all businesses within the country right now, I think we are all looking at making sure that we have a continuity plan in the event that we have a second wave.
My first question would be for Monsieur Aubé.
On the cost of developing an app, would you be able to provide us with a bit of an estimate? No one is asking that direct question, but I'm wondering what the costs would be for developing an app that we could use for the continuity of Parliament.

Thank you so much. I may not be using all of my time, so if other committee members want to get ready, that would be fine.
I also want to take a moment to thank once again the witnesses for appearing today. You always shed a lot of light on the many questions we have, so thanks to each and every one of you for being here today.
I want to follow up on my questions to Monsieur Aubé. During my question, when talking about the issue of cost, you indicated that it's a “sunk cost”. What did you mean by that?
