My first question is to Mr. Grant.
As you know, this pandemic highlighted the issue of early learning and child care. The budget announced last week the national child care plan.
What long-term benefits do you see for implementing such a system for both parents and children?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
We know that our communities and our medical professionals are under increased stress in the third wave. My community is a hot spot of COVID-19. I want to thank all frontline medical workers, nurses and doctors who are saving Canadians every day.
My question is for Dr. Collins. We know that our government announced new supports for Ontario, including sending federal health care staff and equipment to the front lines and more. In your testimony, you referred to an additional $4 billion from the federal government going towards the Canada health transfer to help provinces get through this pandemic. What are some immediate needs that you think the provinces should be targeting?

My next question if for Dr. Bloch.
Dr. Bloch, my mother is presently undergoing treatment for cancer. She's fortunate to have family members supporting her. Can you speak to how patients with a serious illness, especially those with COVID-19, are able to cope when they do not have a support network? What issues do you see among low-income and racialized communities, and what solution do you propose?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you to both of the witnesses for joining us this evening, and for their many years of service to this country. Thank you for your courage.
I know this is a difficult and sensitive subject, so I want to tell the witnesses that if there are questions that they feel uncomfortable about, they can choose not to answer.
My first questions are to General Whitecross. Can you discuss your experience at RMC? Do you have any recommendations for CAF and DND to prevent sexual misconduct and harassment?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Yesterday, in the federal budget, we saw an investment of over $236 million with the goals of eliminating misconduct and gender-based violence in the military and supporting survivors. This includes peer-to-peer support, independent legal advice, support for community-based organizations, support for military justice systems and oversight. This will go a long way, Madam Chair.
I want to begin by thanking all of our witnesses today for coming forward and sharing their stories with this committee as we work to end sexual violence in our armed forces.
Ms. Batek, my questions are for you. Within your line of work with the Survivor Perspectives Consulting Group, what have you recognized as a recurring support need for survivors?

In the previous meeting, Ms. Batek, we heard from witnesses that the option to submit their complaints online would make it easier for witnesses to come forward.
Do you agree that online tools would make it easier for witnesses to come forward?

Thank you to all the witnesses for being here with us today.
Minister, you and your officials have been working non-stop for well over a year to protect the health and safety of all Canadians.
My first question is to Minister Anand. Can you tell the committee about the update we just received from Pfizer? How will this impact the government's vaccine procurement and distribution plans to provinces and territories?

My next question is for Minister Hajdu.
Peel now has more than 5,000 active cases. We keep hearing local concern that Peel region is not getting a sufficient supply from the provincial distribution stage for the number of cases.
Yesterday, the mayor of Brampton had a discussion with the Prime Minister, sharing these concerns. Today, the Prime Minister said that the government is ready 24-7 to help Ontario, if such help is requested.
Minister Hajdu, the Peel chief medical officer has a similar concern. Who can he call about the supply to Peel? How does this system work? Is there sufficient supply from the provincial distribution stage? What steps is our government taking to assist hot spots like my home community in Brampton?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Dr. Tam, earlier this week, your deputy chief public health officer, Dr. Njoo, provided a clear answer to a Conservative colleague's questions. Can you clarify what other tools, such as masks and physical distancing, are necessary while we vaccinate Canadians? Can you clarify why wearing masks continues to be necessary?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you to our witnesses for appearing before our committee. We appreciate the work that you both do within your respective departments.
My first question is for you, Dr. Preston. Can you elaborate on the mandate of the SMRC and the necessity of its services?
