Thank you, Mr. Chair; and thank you, minister, to you and your team for appearing today.
My question is to Dr. Tam.
Dr. Tam, there's a false belief out there that young adults and children do not need to worry about COVID. Tragically, a 13-year-old girl from Brampton passed away from the virus last week, and many of the individuals filling our hospitals are under the age of 40.
What message would you like to send to Canadians about the threat posed by COVID-19 to young people?

Thank you.
The next question is for Mr. Stewart.
Just to clarify, earlier you spoke about the number of people who tested positive at the border. I wanted to confirm that the number was at arrival and not after three days.

Thank you for the clarification.
Minister, as you know, Brampton is a hot-spot zone for COVID-19. The region is home to so many essential workers who live in multi-generational homes. With a positivity rate of 22%, Peel needs support. Unfortunately, the province did not direct sufficient resources to Peel early enough.
Minister, what support has the federal government already provided directly to Peel?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you to all the witnesses for being here.
I know that Punjabi Community Health Services is providing important services to Bramptonians. Thank you for that.
I would like to direct my question to Ms. Dhillon.
Ms. Dhillon, we live in the same community. We see the impact of the pandemic every day in Brampton. We have heard in this committee how racialized communities have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. How can we ensure that they have access to health services and are supported as we recover economically?

Thank you.
You raised an important point on access to child care. One of the long-term consequences of establishing a national early learning and child care system as proposed in Budget 2021 is the opportunity for more women to take on full-time careers, as opposed to part-time work, in addition to looking after children. How do you believe this will impact women's careers once the system is implemented?

You know quite well that many seniors in the South Asian communities have real language barriers. Do you believe they are at a disadvantage when it comes to accessing any services, such as health care services or vaccination services? What is your advice on that? How can all levels of government bridge the barrier?

With the increased use of telehealth and virtual patient care, what kinds of challenges have you witnessed diverse communities facing, from your line of work?

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?
