Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I'd like to bring Ms. MacKenzie and Ms. Forbes into the discussion here.
Ms. MacKenzie, in your opening remarks, there were a couple of things that you said that I'd like to probe a little further. First, you mentioned about a dog not being a program dog and the importance of the differentiation between owner training and self-training.
The other thing you said, and your colleague Ms. Forbes also focused on this as well, was about standards for training versus standards for outcomes. I'd like to hear you elaborate a bit more on those two points, if you would, please.
Then I'm going to go to you, Ms. Forbes.

Thank you.
I'm sorry. Go ahead. Finish your thought. I thought you were done.

Lib. (PE)
Yes, I thought so too. Thank you for that.
Ms. Forbes, one of the things that Ms. MacKenzie just said that I hope you'll be able to help me with is that she is not ADI certified because she's not a charity. Based on all of the committees on which you sit, I know you know this space very well. Why is it that the ADI certification only works for charities?

I think that's what you talked about in terms of being accredited by Imagine Canada.
Could I get you to react to something else, as well?
We heard something from Mr. Cousineau that I found quite troubling, that the process towards developing a national standard was sabotaged by an organization that was pursuing their own self-interests. You indicated that you're on the CGSB technical committee. What would be your reaction to that sort of news? Can you expand upon it at all?

I call this meeting to order and welcome you to meeting number 38 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of January 25, 2021. The proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website, which will always show the person speaking rather than the entirety of the committee.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the motion adopted by the committee on Tuesday, February 2, 2021, the committee will continue its study on the impact of COVID-19 on seniors.
I'd like to welcome Dr. Suzanne Dupuis-Blanchard from the National Seniors Council.
Dr. Blanchard, interpretation is available at this video conference. You have the choice at the bottom of your screen of floor, English or French. When speaking, please speak slowly and clearly, and when you're not speaking, your mike should be on mute.
You'll probably see me from time to time holding up one finger. That's not because I have something to say; it's to signal that there's one minute left in the turn of the person who's asking you a question.
Thank you so much for being with us, Dr. Dupuis-Blanchard.
Without further ado, you have the floor for your opening remarks for a five full minutes, if you need them.

Mr. Turnbull, we now have Dr. Kuperman with us. I'm going to suggest that we suspend to do a sound check for him and then allow him to deliver his opening remarks. You are about halfway through your turn. If all goes well and Dr. Kuperman is ready to go, then you'll have three minutes when we come back.
We'll suspend while we do the sound check.

Dr. Kuperman, you might have missed some of the preamble. I'll give you the condensed version.
Interpretation is available on the bottom of your screen. You have the choice of floor, English or French. Please close your microphone when you're not speaking, and speak slowly and clearly for the benefit of the interpreters. That's the Reader's Digest version.
Now we're going to resume with questions, beginning with Mr. Turnbull for three minutes.
Mr. Turnbull, you have the floor.

Lib. (PE)
Excuse me, Mr. Turnbull. I missed one very important step.
Dr. Kuperman has undoubtedly been working for days and days on his opening remarks, and I gave such a condensed version that I forgot to give him the floor.
Dr. Kuperman, you have five minutes for your opening remarks, and then Mr. Turnbull is going to ask some very interesting questions. You have the floor.

Lib. (PE)
Thank you, Dr. Kuperman.
Without further ado, for the remainder of his six-minute round, we have Mr. Turnbull.
I'll do my best not to interrupt you over the next three minutes, Mr. Turnbull. You have the floor.
