Thank you.
Minister Bradshaw, you said today that:
The Government of Canada recognizes the importance of literacy and other foundation skills to the prosperity and well-being of Canadians. It recognizes, too, that many people--Canada's aboriginal people among them--are lacking the requisite literacy and essential skills.
As you know, the federal government has one area under its complete responsibility, and that's federal jails. It's a nerve centre, a pressure point where literacy programs could be provided with the most significant benefit. As you know, aboriginals are disproportionately represented in federal jails.
Given that unique opportunity, maybe we could talk about the future. What further can be done in federal jails to concentrate efforts on the broad government agenda of a literacy strategy?

Thank you, Madam Chair. It's Paul Forseth here.
Indeed, we're going to have Mr. Devolin ask questions, but before we do so we're going to flip it over to Mr. Russell and he will go first, at our request. It's his constituent and we would like him to proceed.

Colleagues, we're prepared to begin. I see a quorum.
This is the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills Development, Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities. This is meeting 49, on Tuesday, November 1.
We are having further witnesses today, some through video conference and some in person. I see on our list here at least five witnesses; we welcome you all.
Eventually the transcripts of these proceedings will be available on the Internet. This committee hopes to present a report to Parliament and to the public; it will also be available on the Internet. This is a series of meetings we're holding to gather evidence; at some point, the committee will have to come to some conclusions and make some recommendations.
Our first witness, Pierre Vigeant, director general of the Fédération québécoise des centres communautaires de loisir, has about three minutes to make a statement. We'll go through our witness list, and then we'll go the rounds with the parties with a question and answer session.
Mr. Vigeant, please begin.
