Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you very much to all the witnesses.
I don't usually sit on this committee. I am replacing someone.
When you talk about our seniors, I would like to know whether I am considered one or not. How do you describe a senior? That is my first question.
My second point has to do with the shame related to aging. It might be more appropriate perhaps to talk about “difficulty”. You did not talk about loneliness when you gave the definition of people who are ashamed to grow older, whether by drinking, by taking drugs or in any other way.
Furthermore, what is your main expectation from the federal framework for suicide prevention?
My last question is for the three of you. If you had to choose one priority only in what you are proposing to the government, what would it be? From everything you have said, what is the most important aspect in the prevention of suicide among seniors? Of course, an increase in the budget would be appreciated, but I don't think that's all. I think you might expect something else and I would like to know what it is.
