I call this meeting to order.
I will start by acknowledging that in Ottawa we meet on the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin people.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the motion adopted on April 29, 2021, the committee is meeting on its study of the sex trafficking of indigenous peoples.
To ensure an orderly meeting, I'd like to outline some best practices.
Participants, you can speak and listen in the official language of your choice. At the bottom centre of your screen there's a globe. You select that globe and then select English or French as your preferred language. Then, as we proceed, if you wish to speak in the other language, there's no need to make any technical adjustments, but you should be on the language of your choice as we begin, so look for that.
When you speak, please speak slowly and clearly. When you're not speaking, your microphone should be on mute.
With us today for the rest of the time available to us are Trisha Baptie, community engagement coordinator of EVE, and Karen Pictou, executive director of the Nova Scotia Native Women's Association. Our witnesses will give opening statements. They are usually around six minutes, but we'll offer you as much time as you need to complete the sentiments that you wish to share.
I should tell you that when we go to questioning, there's no requirement to answer any questions that may cause you discomfort. We understand the sensitivity of things, so please don't ever feel that you need to engage in any question or other conversation that causes you discomfort.
Having said that, I'll ask Karen Pictou, the executive director of the Nova Scotia Native Women's Association, to present her testimony first.
Thank you. Go ahead, please.

Thanks very much for that.
We're going to bring in our two other witnesses. Ms. Baptie, we'll get to you next.
To both of you who have just joined us, at the bottom centre of your screen there is a globe, and when you select the globe, you'll find “English” or “French”. Choose the language you wish to hear in. When you are speaking, you can change back and forth, but you should be selecting either “English” or “French” on that icon.
Having said that, we're going to go now to Ms. Baptie.
Thank you for being here, Trisha. Please go ahead.

Thank you so much, Trisha.
Part of today's activity, of course, is hearing a round of questions from our panel, which is a really important component, because we need to see how we've been influenced by the things we're being told by our witnesses.
We'll get to our questions, but right now we have two more witnesses to hear from, Ms. Perrier and Ms. Gobert.
Ms. Perrier, please go ahead for six minutes or for whatever time you feel you need.

Ms. Perrier, thanks so much. It's remarkable testimony.
We'll go now to Janet Gobert. Take as much time as you need. Please go ahead.

Thank you so much.
We're going to go to rounds of questions now. We're a bit limited today because of the lengthy but brilliant testimony, but it is so important for us to hear it.
Please remember that the two people who are cited as analysts are remarkable in their ability to extract and put together for the purposes of our reporting the information that you've provided. As much as we'd love to continue questioning for a long time, everything that you've said is important and will be captured in the report that we will eventually prepare.
That said, we're going to go now to a round of questions for six minutes each.
Mr. Viersen, you're up first.

Mr. Viersen, we're well over time, and in fairness, we'll.... Perhaps the question will get picked up again.
I'm going to ask Ms. Zann to go ahead for six minutes.

No, she's not.
I can't hear you, Ms. Gobert. We'll get that solved in a moment. We need to move on to our next questioner for six minutes.
