Mr. Speaker, let me begin by reading from the news release of the auditor general wherein he wrote:
Longstanding and widespread problems finally being addressed—Sustained effort is required.
As I have said on a number of occasions, the administration of grants and contributions in my department was unacceptable. That is why we implemented a corrective action plan for which today the auditor general has given unqualified support. He asked us to sustain our effort, and I will commit to the House that indeed we will.
