Mr. Speaker, the government fully understands the role that this government and other governments can play in ensuring that Canada's children have that very important first start.
In the Speech from the Throne, we identified a number of initiatives that we will undertake, not the least of which is a doubling of parental leave benefits. We understand there are tax measures that have to be incorporated, as well as the creative development of the national child benefit with the provinces. We want to work with the provinces to focus specifically on the early years for children. We will do that.
