Thank you, Madam Chair.
Before I begin, I'm just going to move my motion from last meeting:
That, as part of its study on the Canadian Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology invite Daniel Therrien, Privacy Commissioner of Canada, to testify regarding the development and ongoing operation of the recently released contact tracing application.

I'll just say quickly that I'm fine with that. I think that's good.

Thank you very much, Madam Chair.
Thank you, everybody, for your patience while we dealt with that quickly.
I will begin with Mr. Landon. We don't have any representatives for students here today, but I still want to ask about the government's support for Canadian students. The Canadian Federation of Students has launched a petition stating that the $912-million Canada student service grant was flawed from the start. They strongly criticize its practicality and usefulness for students.
My first question would be whether the federal government consulted with any universities about the value of this program.

Okay. Was this an idea that you think the universities or students would have considered or proposed on their own?

Okay. One reason I'm asking this is that we already have a program called the Canada summer jobs program. In my riding specifically, there were more businesses and groups that did not receive funding for it than did, which means there were more students who were not hired than who were hired to work jobs for these various businesses here.
Again, I'm just wondering whether pre-existing programs such as Canada summer jobs or some other arrangement would work better to help students impacted by COVID to continue their studies.

Okay.
A big concern for a lot of students is getting a job after they graduate. How much has COVID limited the job market for potential university graduates?

Do you want to elaborate on any of those measures specifically?

Do you find that the broadband available to our universities is sufficient to move to more e-learning, more online learning, or even just the on-campus experience as we move to a more enhanced digital experience?

You're absolutely right.
Are you or your members planning for how the economy is likely to shift during and after COVID? How does it look for lines of work that require post-secondary education?

Okay.
Just quickly, how do the restrictions on Canadian university campuses compare with those in the U.S. or in other countries?

Thank you for that. I really appreciate it.

Colleagues, thank you very much for being here. It's good to see all of you virtually. I hope you've been having a good summer.
Today's meeting will only last approximately 90 minutes. We had originally scheduled the President of the Treasury Board to be with us today, but he informed us a few days ago that he was unavailable for today's meeting, so I have scheduled him for next Thursday for the full two hours.
Today's meeting will be somewhat truncated. We have a couple of witnesses, but I do not believe we will need the entire 90 minutes. We'll probably go through one complete round of questions with our witnesses and then I'll take about five minutes at the end of the meeting for some very brief committee business. Hopefully that meets the approval of everyone on this committee.
To our witnesses, you've probably received these instructions before but in case you have not, when you are speaking, please make sure that if you're speaking in English you are on the English channel. For those witnesses who may want to alternate between English and French, I suggest that if you start a statement or answer a question in one of the two official languages, complete your statement, question or answer in that official language. Please do not switch back and forth between French and English, because that causes problems for our technicians. I also ask that you speak slowly and clearly so that our interpreters can hear your statements and we are able to give proper interpretation.
Angela, I do not have, at this point, the speaking order of our witnesses. I wonder if you could introduce our three witnesses. My understanding is that each one of them will have a brief, five-minute opening statement. If you can inform me which of our witnesses is first, I will introduce that witness and then we'll commence.
Colleagues, we'll have our normal rounds of questioning, which will be six minutes for the first round, five minutes for the second round and then two and a half minutes for the last round.
Angela, who is our first witness?

Thank you.
Angela, do we have another speaker or have we concluded our opening comments?

Thank you very much.
Ms. Picco, the floor is yours. You may have to unmute your microphone. That's perfect. We can hear you now.
