Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I believe this is a number of things the department is doing to provide further virtual care to our residents. I just want to thank the Minister for bringing this forward.

During COVID, we made many steps in this direction, and now there seems to be a bit of a catch-up to make -- change some of the regulations, adopt the software, and really be a leader in this area. So I will gladly support this bill on second reading.
