Mr. Speaker, last week, the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs admitted that the millennium scholarships were probably a mistake. He also said “If we were wrong, we will not do it again”. Yet today we learn that the Minister of Human Resources Development is negotiating with the Liberal opposition in Quebec.
My question is for the Minister of Human Resources Development.
Not only has the federal government made a mistake by creating the millennium scholarships but, on top of that, the minister is in the process of committing a second mistake by negotiating with the opposition in Quebec instead of with the democratically elected government, which represents all Quebeckers.
