Thank you.
Mr. Cousineau, I was wondering if I can ask about your service dogs, sir.
What are the monthly costs for you to keep that service dog? Do you get any assistance from Veterans Affairs?

What I'd like to compare is the cost of the medicine versus the cost of the dog. Is there a cost saving to the department because you have the service dog? How much money are you saving VAC because you have Thai?

First of all, also let me thank both of you for the service to our country.
Would you say that we should examine the use of service animals and maybe this committee should undertake a better comprehensive study in view of how the service animals are your partners? They also help with your family. Would that be something useful to do?

Thank you.
Mr. Yhard, would you be able to give us a number? What percentage of the vets that are homeless have gotten the lump sum? Would you have instances where somebody got a lump sum and after whatever use they put it to, be it to pay off debts, get to school, get out of drug addiction.... How many of them spent that money and they've gone on to be homeless?

From the people you've talked to, be it 50, 100, 150, your guesstimate, how many would you say have received a lump sum and spent it wisely, or foolishly, and then they're out on the streets?

We wouldn't want you to disclose their names. I'm sure this committee can certainly be interested in knowing the numbers. If you can share it with us, that would be something I'm sure we can find useful.
Going back to you, Mr. Cousineau, you said the lump sum is something that is not helpful. I was wondering if you can elaborate on that. I remember there was a situation where some comments were attributed to me and I'm sure my colleagues across the way tried to even do a fundraising campaign on those comments. I was told by Wounded Warriors that giving somebody a lump sum is like dangling a case of beer in front of a drunk. That's something that got some people excited. I'm just wondering if you can, in your sense, elaborate. Giving somebody a lump sum, is it helpful, or is it not helpful? Do we have people who suffer from PTSD hitting the bottle? I know that Mike Cole, who is a captain, said that he's seen the south end of a bottle—

Just the leeway that you gave the parliamentary secretary, do me the same courtesy, Chair.
Mr. Cousineau, sir, if you can elaborate on that...?

Chair, I have a point of order.
Could I flag something to you with the clerk? I understand that there's supposed to be a dress code in our committee when we get the floor. Would you address that, please?
