You raise a good point.
I think that for all Canadians, when they go to work, if things are not good at home—if they have a sick child at home and they're thinking about them—it's sometimes hard to focus on work. Imagine for someone in the military who is deployed how difficult it can be when they physically can't actually be there.
Putting those resources into place is giving the member and their family a sense of confidence. We are also making sure that the wider Canadian Armed Forces have the support structure in place so that a member's family also feels that they are going to be looked after. When their family member is deployed, they have the extra burden of not knowing what they are doing. The family member who has been deployed knows exactly what they are doing, but they are missing their families.
It's an extremely difficult time, and we want to make sure they have the right support structure. That's why the investments in the MFRCs are so important. More importantly, we want to make sure the MFRCs and the support structures on the base actually cater to the different types of needs each base has.
One particular example was that of a single mom who was a military police officer working the night shift and who couldn't get day care. Adjustments can be made to those things now within the bases, because we're putting investments into the MFRCs so that she can actually go to work and not have the extra burden of finding someone to look after her child when she has to do night shifts.
Those are tangible examples I can provide to you of how deeply we're looking at this.
