Mr. Speaker, when we look the investments these funds make, we see that a fairly significant percentage is in debentures and has not gone directly to job creation, for the pure and simple reason-and they will tell you so-that there is a shortage of investments and it takes a bit of time. That is why I said there was enough at least for three years. There is nothing there to slow growth or job creation.
On the other hand, the measures we took with respect to these funds have been very well received throughout Canada, including in Quebec, because we recognize that these funds were established to help them get started, and, now that they are established, things are going quite well. I should add, as far as the 20 per cent is concerned, I have said in this House that it was not this government's intention to permit more than 20 per cent. But, it must be said that pension funds in Canada invest in companies that create jobs abroad.
I am sure the Leader of the Opposition would not want the Caisse de dépôt to stop investing in Canadian companies creating jobs abroad.
