Mr. Speaker, that article effectively pointed out the importance of taking action with respect to the smuggling of firearms. However, the fact that this problem exists does not mean that other things are not also needed. We have to address all these concerns.
The minister of revenue and the people working in his department, the solicitor general and members of the RCMP are all working closely with other police forces. Indeed, when I met with the attorney general of the United States here in Ottawa in March, the first item on the agenda was the need for our
governments to work together more effectively to deal with the smuggling of firearms.
I fully agree with the hon. member, it is an important issue. It needs more attention, and it will get it.
