Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, witnesses, for your testimony and for adding to our study.
I'll start with Dr. Lashley.
Do you feel that there is enough collaboration between the federal and provincial governments on mental health support?

Thank you.
We hear a lot when the incidents happen, and you hear it on the news, but what is the prevalence of suicides in the cases of police interventions? Have you looked into that?

Another part of.... On the collection of data on racial discrimination in the police, is there a challenge in gathering data from all these separate police departments working separately? What can we do to address this?

Thank you, and thank you to all the witnesses.
Professor Leuprecht, the National Security Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians in 2019 did an annual report in which they reviewed inclusion and diversity within the RCMP, and the report statistics showed that visible minorities were under-represented in the RCMP, including among senior ranks.
Can you elaborate on this?

Thank you.
Chairperson Lahaie, you mentioned that the commission is very diverse. Do these members also have broad experience in policing?

Thank you.
Thank you, witnesses, for bringing forth some very important testimony.
I will start with Mr. McCaffrey.
What strategies should be developed to attract and recruit more young aboriginals and first nations into the RCMP? I know you touched on this, but I think it's very important that we move forward with this.

Thank you.
Now, with all of your experience, have you been approached by the RCMP to give advice, or do you know other people who have been?

Thank you.
What more can we do to attract more indigenous communities to the police forces themselves, whether it's self-determined police forces or the RCMP?

Thank you, Commissioner, for being here for this important study.
As Canadians, we around the table would all agree that there's so much we have to proud of in being Canadian. We are proud of our history and proud of what Canada is. Of course, there are issues we need to work on in Canada. Racism is one of them, both racist incidents and systemic racism. We've all acknowledged that they exist in our public institutions and in private institutions as well.
This is a very important conversation. It's an important opportunity to study this issue and for legislators to take a look at how we can move forward. As parents, this conversation about racism is one that my wife and I have had with our kids. Racism is not something we can completely shield them from, so it's something we feel they need to understand and to maybe prepare them for as they grow older. Of course, the conversations change, but they're important. The work we're doing today is working to make the system better going into the future, and better for them.
To start off, I just want to ask you about the makeup of the RCMP, the demographics of it. Do you have any statistics? In terms of members with cultural, indigenous or ethnic backgrounds, do you know what the percentages are, overall, for the RCMP? Is that data that you keep? If you do—which would be important for recruitment—where was that five years ago compared to where are you now?

Thank you. That's the makeup of all of it. What does that look like in the management ranks?

Do you have statistics on the number of police interactions in Canada, interactions versus those that result in complaints?
I'm just trying to get a sense of the scope of that problem. I know you mentioned use of force. This wouldn't be just specifically use of force but overall complaints.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
This government continues to fund projects in Ethiopia. The Prime Minister actually met with the Ethiopian prime minister earlier this year. Were concerns raised about human rights abuses and political violence targeting the Oromo people, or were you more concerned about getting support for your failed UN Security Council bid?

Madam Chair, I've heard from several small businesses in Edmonton Mill Woods, and actually right across the country, regarding business bank loans they have that are now up for renewal. Because of COVID, their revenues are down, and the collateral they provide, which is most likely the building they operate out of, may not appraise at the same value. They are concerned that the banks will recall these loans and that they will lose everything.
Has the government had discussions with banks regarding this situation and encouraged them to work with businesses?

Madam Chair, the CEO of Cequence Energy stated that the supports for the oil and gas sector are deceitful. He went on to say, “I feel like it was a fanfare by the federal government to try and provide window dressing to an industry that I am not sure it supports.”
Simply put, Madam Chair, more needs to be done to support the oil and gas sector. Will this government provide real support for the oil and gas sector, as it promised to do back in March?
