It's been a while since this committee has considered the access to justice issue. We've had a number of justice bills.
Going back to previous witness testimony, a lot of it has centred on the fact that the federal component of legal aid is bundled up in the Canada social transfer. The federal government will say it does fund legal aid, and the provinces will say, “No, you don't.”
There's a lot of this happening, so a lot of people have recommended that the federal government have that separate amount of legal aid.
Just so that we are clear, when we're writing our report, is this something you are in support of?
