The Canada Child Benefit is going to have an enormous impact on Canadian families. It will change their lives. We made the decision to do something now to help families in a significant way. We know that this is one of the most important initiatives we will take. We decided it would be advisable to index the benefit in future. In this way, we can ensure that the program will continue to have an impact. We have already observed an impact on Canadians, and I am confident that this will continue.
