Thank you very much. That is kind of you.
It was noted earlier, and I said it at the start of my presentation: funding for scholarly journals enables them to exist, to flourish and to engage in promotion; that is one thing. However, we also have to think about doing more to support scientific activities in French and the organizations that initiate them. Obviously, there has been a breakdown in the last 10 or 20 years, during which we have seen a gradual decrease in funding. The combination of rising costs and decreased funding brings us to the situation we are now in.
We therefore have to adopt very concrete measures to correct the situation. As I said, it is one thing to incorporate research as a fundamental element in the revision of the Official Languages Act, but we still need to take the necessary measures to fully achieve the objectives of the Act.
