No, Madam Chair, the whole thing didn't dissolve and disappear into thin air. Status of Women is the foundation upon which we have built this new department.
I will add that our government was the first to put out there, in public, mandate letters. My mandate letter hasn't changed. I am still working to advance the items that you see very clearly on the Government of Canada website that I am responsible for, with the addition, as is very clearly included in Bill C-86, of the need to expand the scope to include LGBTQ2S individuals in the work we do, and to have more rights and opportunities.
This means that this new department is not going to be vulnerable to the whims and values of the sitting government of the day. It's here to stay. The work is basically the same, with the expanded mandate, so it's very clear in Bill C-86.
