Mr. Speaker, that report refers to situations in 1992. The minister and the department have taken steps since then.
I remind the member exactly what has happened since then. The report already acknowledges that the minister has taken steps. First, he has taken a look at new guidelines for promotions, acting positions and training for supervisors and managers.
What has happened as a result? The member ought to acknowledge that the percentage of people who have come from those minorities, which he rightly defends in this instance, has risen to 5.9 per cent.
A true reflection of the matter is that we are, in the department, moving well beyond expectations that even the member might set.
