I congratulated you on your work because I truly believe you're doing a good job. I acknowledge the contribution of all committee members.
Regarding bilingualism, in general, we can always do better. It's an ongoing challenge in the country. I've said it a number of times. That's why the committee is so important and why all official languages supporters are important, regardless of the party.
I also think that the drop in funding in recent years and the decrease, I believe, in importance of the official languages inevitably resulted in a decline in the government's capacities.
Recently, when I gave a speech to all the senior public servants in the country, I spoke from the heart. I told them that, throughout the government and the public service, we must reassert the value and highlight the importance of the official languages. I think the work must be done collaboratively.
I also think that everyone in the public service, government and opposition can do better when it comes to bilingualism and official languages in the country.
