Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I thank all our witnesses today for their presentations.
First I want to go back for a moment to Dr. Barry from the radiologists association.
It's good to speak with you again. I know the ask of $1.5 billion was something we had put on the table in the last election, but to purchase MRIs and CTs, you're very short. You're making a very good point that many of those—I think you used the number of 75%—are near their end of life as far as that equipment goes. Even though you're still doing a lot of work from home, you're still well behind in the types of scans that you're able to do.
Can you elaborate on that and perhaps tell our committee how long it takes to put that type of equipment in place and whether there are any roadblocks from regulations that we could look at as well?

That relates to the second part of your ask, as well, with regard to the rooms and the types of facilities that you need to work in.
I just want to go back to the cancer issue. You were mentioning that we have a huge backlog here, hundreds of thousands—I think it's 330,000—of situations that need to be dealt with right away, elective surgeries and that sort of thing, but more in the diagnostics area, the extended.... Can you just refer again to the extensions for the cancer patients? Is it a situation of getting the equipment into areas that need it more? Are there areas in Canada that are at greater risk or that have a vacuum of equipment that could be dealt with, or is there technology today to be able to take those scans and move them into another area where a radiologist doesn't have to be there with the person when the imaging is being done?

Thank you.
I want to ask a last question with regard to whether some provinces have done a better job of adjusting their diagnostic imaging departments to the pandemic and keeping their wait times as short as possible. Are there examples that we could use there and follow up on? What's your best knowledge, just to finalize that? Do you know of any COVID outbreaks happening in diagnostic imaging in Canada? You made a very good case that things are being well controlled, but are there areas of concern?

Well, I'm assuming that you're going to be inviting Minister Sajjan to provide testimony in place of Zita Astravas, which to me is completely ignoring the order that came from the House. Parliament demanded that Zita Astravas be the one to appear. I think it's contemptuous that she isn't and that the actions by the government are just playing into the larger realm that this is a cover-up.
I would suggest, Madam Chair, that we do hear from the minister, that he stay for the entire time that was allotted for Zita Astravas and that questions that we had prepared for her we'll be putting to the minister.

I would just say, Madam Chair, that this doesn't absolve Zita Astravas from appearing at committee. There's still the order from the House, and I expect it to be respected.
With that, let's get on with addressing ministerial responsibility with the minister himself.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Minister, just so you know, this isn't about politics. This is about making sure we get to the bottom of why your so-called claim of zero tolerance for sexual misconduct did not extend to General Vance and why you allowed him to walk away three years ago.
Madam Chair, we are supposed to hear from Zita Astravas today. I'm hoping the minister has talked to her and has the questions we had prepared for her, so that we can get more of the information that he actually suggested we pursue.
Minister, on what date did Zita Astravas learn of the allegations against General Vance?

Thank you.
That would have been March 1, 2018.
