The Vice-Chair (Mr. John Richardson (Perth—Middlesex, Lib.)): Could I have your attention, please? The witnesses are here and we have a quorum.

It’s my pleasure to welcome the witnesses to the public accounts committee. We will have a series of questions going back and forth according to the side of the government or the opposition. In this case, we will be starting the questioning with an opposition member, Mr. John Cummins.

I would first ask General Auger to introduce the people from DND.

For those from Health Canada, Mr. Michols, would you follow the same suit after General Auger finishes introducing the members from the Department of National Defence?
