Mr. Speaker, I have not seen the studies involved. I would be pleased to read them and comment after I have read them.
I do not think that the leader of the Bloc has had a lot of time to read them. In any case, that is not the point. Other studies have been made public.
The greatest architect of social programs in Quebec, Claude Castonguay, said it was very positive. The leader of the opposition in the National Assembly said he could improve on it, but that it was positive.
I would like to quote the principal adviser, “cryptochief” perhaps, of the Bloc. Jacques Parizeau said “Canadian federalism is, with that of Switzerland, probably the most decentralized in the world”.
