Thank you, Chad.
Madam Chair, I just want to ask a question of the Right Honourable David Johnston.
Dr. Johnston, I'm from Brampton, which is the home of many innovative and world-renowned companies. We have MDA, with the help of the federal government. MDA is based in Brampton and is developing leading-edge technologies from the iconic Canadarm3.
Can you expand on how strategic investment in Canada's space sector is advancing ambitious research and innovation? What can the impact be?
You also talked about the global citizen program. What role does diversity and inclusion play in generating bold and ambitious research?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you to all the witnesses and survivors for being with us, and thank you for your bravery. We need to work together on this.
My first question is this: How can we encourage sport organizations to meet higher standards for the government's accountability for safe sport, and how can we teach coaches about the gender-based gap?

Thank you.
You gave the example of the U.K. discipline. Do you think any other country is doing something different?

Thank you, Mr. Chair. Thank you to all the witnesses for being with us today.
I have a question for Dr. Lucas.
You said in your statement that demand increased significantly in August. Why did the demand increase in recent months? What factors are contributing to that?

I'm wondering about the review process for importing medications.
Can you comment on the process of reviewing dosing, ingredients, cautions and warnings? What work has been done to improve the use of official languages on pediatric medication bottles?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
I'm splitting my time with Emmanuella.
Thank you, Minister Ien, for being with us today. I know you're working very hard on the ground for women and girls across this country.
Minister, we heard from the witnesses that early intervention is important for young women and girls with intersecting identities who experience unique mental health challenges.
I know you are also the minister for youth. Can you expand on the importance of culturally relevant supports and how early intervention is important for young women and girls?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Minister, I want to ask about stigmas and stereotypes. I know that in specific cultural communities.... How can we break down these stigmas? How important is it for some communities?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to my colleague Ms. Goodridge for raising this issue. I agree with all of my colleagues that it's an important issue. Let's deal with it. I don't favour an amendment or subamendment, but I'm in favour of the motion because it's important.
Let's have a meeting, as Mr. Davies said, on an urgent basis with Health Canada, the pharmacists and then witnesses from your riding.
We're all working collaboratively. Let's work collaboratively on the motion.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
I support the amendment Jenna proposed.
I totally agree with Leah. We have been working together very well, and collaboratively. We completed an IPDV report and a resource development study. We are about to wrap up our mental health study.
I know we all want to see greater representation of women and girls in sport, at all levels. It is true that Canadian women and girls continue to face barriers to full participation and representation in the Canadian sports system. We all want that.
Every study we do is a good study, because we care about that.
On the amendment, I agree that beginning the study on the 17th is the best approach. It gives us the time parties need to submit witness lists, and for the clerk to send those invitations. Again, I support this amendment.
With that, thank you, Madam Chair.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you to all the witnesses for being with us.
My question is for Ms. Minhas.
We heard, Ms. Minhas, that young women are among the most vulnerable to sexual violence. In 2018, Stats Canada noted that 61% of young women aged 15 to 24 have experienced unwanted sexual behaviour.
Do you think social media or online bullying affects the mental health of young women and girls in Canada?

My next question is for the DisAbled Women's Network of Canada.
What role can the federal government play to decrease the stigma out there, stigma around people living with disabilities?

Thanks.
