Good afternoon, everyone.
It's my pleasure to call this meeting to order and to welcome each and every one of you to meeting number 29 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format pursuant to the House order of January 25, and proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website. Just so that you are all aware, the webcast will always show the person speaking rather than the entire committee.
To ensure an orderly meeting, I would like to outline a few points to follow. First, members and witnesses may speak in the official language of their choice. Interpretation services are available for this meeting. You have the choice at the bottom of your screen of either the floor, English, or French.
For members participating in person, proceed as you usually would when the whole committee is meeting in person in the committee room. Keep in mind the directives from the Board of Internal Economy regarding masking and health protocols.
Before speaking, please wait until I recognize you by name. If you are on video conference, please click on the microphone icon to unmute yourself.
For those in the room, your microphone will be controlled as normal by the proceedings and verification officer. I remind everyone that all comments by members and witnesses should be addressed through the chair. When you're not speaking, your mike should be on mute. With regard to a speaking list, as always, the committee clerk and I will do our very best to maintain the order of speaking for all members whether they are participating virtually or in person.
Members, pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the motion adopted by the committee on October 29, 2020, the committee will now continue its study of targeted infrastructure investments.
I would now like to welcome and introduce our witnesses for today's meeting. First, we have from the Alaska-Alberta Railway Development Corporation, Mr. Jean Paul Gladu, president, Canada; and Mr. Sean McCoshen, founder and chairman. Appearing as an individual is Shoshana Saxe, assistant professor, department of civil and mineral engineering at the University of Toronto. From the Canadian Urban Transit Association we have Marco D'Angelo, president and chief executive office. Finally, from the City of Sept-Îles, is Réjean Porlier, mayor.
With that, we're going to start off with Jean Paul Gladu and Sean McCoshen.
I'm not sure which one of you is going to be speaking, but you have five minutes. The floor is now yours. Welcome.

Thank you, Mr. Barsalou-Duval.
Mr. Clerk, what's the problem over there?

Ms. Saxe, could you please place your microphone just above your top lip? I was hearing a popping sound. That could be the problem. Try placing it above your top lip and right against your skin. Just hang it like a moustache. That's what we're always told by the interpreters.
Mike, perhaps you can keep an eye on things and we'll see what happens. We have only a few minutes to get through here.
Mr. Barsalou-Duval, hopefully we can get the interpretation for you.
Ms. Saxe, please continue.

Thank you, Ms. Saxe.
Don't take it personally. This is a normal thing that's been happening over the past year with our new normal when it comes to committee work and, of course, all the tech that we rely on. I give a lot of credit to the interpreters because they do their best with what they have. It's ongoing. It's become the norm, so don't take too much offence.
You did great work.
We're now going to move on to the Canadian Urban Transit Association.
Mr. D'Angelo, you have your headset all ready to go I see, and you have the floor for five minutes.

Thank you, Mr. D'Angelo. Great job.
We don't have Mr. Porlier, the mayor of Sept-Îles, online. He's having problems connecting, so I'm going to go right to questions.
Mr. Barsalou-Duval, you have a question.

Lib. (ON)
Thank you, Mr. D'Angelo.
Mr. El-Khoury, your time is up, so I'm going to go on to the next witness. Hopefully, if other witnesses have some other comments to make on that, they can make them within their answers to other questions.
Thank you, Mr. El-Khoury.
With that, I'm going to move on to Mr. Barsalou-Duval of the Bloc Québécois for six minutes.

With the interpretation, we're getting both English and French at the same volume.
