Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to all of our witnesses for appearing here.
I noticed my colleague over here, Mr. Amos, tried to draw you into a political comment. I'm not going to do that. I think this is too important to politicize.
I'd like to talk a bit about the wetland restoration and expansion opportunities that we have to address some of our flooding challenges across Canada.
Mr. Amos already referenced some of the funding that is available federally for infrastructure development. Could you comment on the programs as you see them right now at the federal level that provide support for wetlands management and expansion, especially in the local communities, which is where I see a lot of it happening?
In my community of Abbotsford in British Columbia, there are a number of different urban wetlands that were preserved and that protected against urban sprawl, and today they're serving us very well in addressing flood challenges that occur from time to time.
I'd be interested in any of your comments, and I have one question for Ms. Lindsay.
