Thank you, Mr. Samson.
It goes without saying that I respect your work a great deal. I appreciate the reports you produce. We are all allies around this table as regards the official languages.
It is true that the Official Languages Act will mark its 50th anniversary in 2019. We have already announced our intention to revise and modernize the regulations for the application of the Official Languages Act. We are prepared to consider how the system and our approach can be modernized. Each time you make recommendations, we consider them.
I know the Senate is also considering the modernization of the Official Languages Act. The senators have to produce a report in 2019.
I am following all of this very closely because it is clear that the Official Languages Act must evolve with Canadian society.
