Good morning. I'm Carol Schumacher. I'm with Walmart Investor Relations. And on behalf of the entire Walmart team, both the corporation and Walmart Canada, we welcome you into our meeting. This is our International Conference for the Investment Community. And as you know, the purpose of this meeting is to do a really deep dive into one of our countries so that you will have the opportunity to learn much more about the business and to be able to meet with the management team running that business. For those of you who are here live in the meeting with us, we will be handing out hard copies of the slides for easy notetaking. Also remember, at the end of the meeting, that we'll be giving those who are here a USB drive with copies of the presentations, the information you'll be getting on the store tours as well as a lot of other information about Walmart Canada, so make sure that you pick that up before you leave.
