Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
First of all, I'd like to say that I'm glad we're having this meeting. Today, I will not try to find those responsible, or guilty parties. We have to manage a crisis and it will take everyone's efforts to get through this.
I also want to recognize the outstanding work that front-line responders do, whether they are hospital workers or people who respond to multiple requests. I would also like to acknowledge the work of all of my colleagues in the House who work on the front lines. Indeed, we have become front-line responders so that together we can get through this crisis, a deadly global pandemic.
That being said, the analyses of when and how we should have done this or that can be done in due course. Count on us to do those analyses. However, today, in the face of a pandemic of this nature, we need to work on our ability to respond to the threat. Many people are calling us from different places. In different parts of Quebec, entrepreneurs and people are ready to push forward to provide what is called personal protective equipment. I would like to know what we are doing to speed up these projects. It would be important to have specific answers on this subject.
There are people who can serve parts of the territory. In Quebec, we try to promote local purchasing. If suppliers are able to supply regions with materials, I think we should encourage that, notwithstanding today's announcements about large orders, the delivery of masks, and so on. I'm talking about other types of supplies, such as disinfectant.
I would like the answer to be addressed to the entrepreneurs who are waiting for an answer in order to be able to contribute to the fight against the current crisis and to help their compatriots. That's my first question.

Mr. Chair, that's not my question. I don't want to know if we're communicating with multiple suppliers. I'm talking about the war effort of every one of our entrepreneurs in the field.
How can these people get answers quickly so they can contribute?

Thank you.
We know that the key to success in fighting the coronavirus is the ability to act quickly.
Mr. Lucas, you mentioned earlier that companies could register online. What I'm interested in is how many companies have been converted so far? How many companies have received permission to convert and how many are waiting at this time?

I'm sorry to interrupt, but how many have been converted as we speak?
