We will go outside and have the photograph taken.

I am struck not only by the commitment of our guests in their playing life but also by their consideration of the players who will come after them in the sport, in addition to their security. The individuals present do not have the same security that participants in other sports might have, yet their commitment is total. I am very much aware of that.

The point made by Senator Mark Daly on future income is important because players are committing their working lives to their sport. It is important to remember this. I thank the witnesses for attending. The committee members have listened carefully. Obviously, we will report to the Minister. If the witnesses have anything to add, we will be happy to hear it. We will suspend now and resume in private session immediately after the photograph.
