The Chair Liberal Ruby Sahota

Since this is a very important issue, I was wondering whether Ms. Lawson or anybody else could step in and explain what is being done to facilitate other languages and how Ms. Qaqqaq or any other members who wish to try to make this type of change for the future could do so without it being at this point in Bill C-19, since it is beyond the scope of Bill C-19 at this time.

Thank you, Madam Chair.

I'll turn to the two witnesses.

Mr. Schaan, I gather from your comments that Bill C‑253 isn't perfect. Compared to other bills introduced on the same issues or for the same reasons over the past 20 years, is this one better, in your opinion?

Could the entities regulated by this bill be spared the potential consequences of the legislation?

In Bill C‑253, that isn't the case. However, the guaranteed amounts that you just mentioned, which total $50,000 U.S., in the United States, are they guaranteed, not only by the entity or company and the funds set aside for retirement, but also by the government?

Do any governments in other parts of the world guarantee these types of amounts?

It's okay for one of you two to answer.

Thank you.

This is as much in the judge advocate general's field as it is in mine. There is a consolidated website that now shows all the access opportunities for anybody who wishes to report a situation, and also lists, in detail, all of the support mechanisms for those who have experienced trauma or wish to talk about their trauma, as part of our Bill C-77 response.

I think it would be more appropriate at this time if the judge advocate general were to detail that.
